The next application deadline for the Churchill Scholarship is:

This is the date by which the application must be sent by the Campus Representative in an email transmission to the office of the Churchill Foundation.

Please note that each institution participating in the Churchill Scholarship Program may nominate only two candidates for the Churchill Scholarship and that each sets its own internal deadline for the local review of the Churchill Scholarship application and nomination of the two candidates selected. Please be sure to check with your Scholarship Advisor the procedures and campus deadline for the Churchill Scholarship.

Choosing the right course for you can be far from straightforward, and you should check the Programs of Study page for a guide and a list of ineligible courses. Applicants interested in the MASt in mathematics should first read the Foundation's guide, Part III Mathematics for Churchill Scholars.

Please note that you must apply separately to the University of Cambridge and that you must put Churchill College as your first choice college, even if you are also applying to other scholarships.
