The Winston Churchill Foundation Scholarship
The Winston Churchill Foundation was founded in 1959 by American friends of Churchill, to ensure that there would always be American graduate students in Churchill College at Cambridge University. The University of Cambridge offers over 40 fields of graduate study to Churchill Scholars interested in advancing knowledge in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics.
The Scholarship covers a duration of 9 to 12 months, depending on the length of the chosen academic program. It awards between $44,000 and $50,000, covering all tuition and university fees, a living allowance between £10,000 and £12,000, and an allowance of $1,000 for travel to and from the United Kingdom. The Foundation may also offer to Scholars a Special Research Grant to cover travel for presentations at international conferences, research trips to other universities or institutes, and other activities.
