Supporting the minds of the future

Making sure that the best and brightest can come to Churchill to study, irrespective of background or the ability to pay is only possible with the help of student support.

This is why raising funds for student support was the focus of the latest Churchill College Telephone Fundraising campaign which ran from the 5–19 December 2016, when 13 student callers spoke to 670 alumni to help raise money for this life-changing resource

Every contribution will make a big difference – this year more than ever before – thanks to the generosity of alumnus Dr Adrian Hobden (U&G 72) who match funded the first £80,000 of donations raised for student support.

We interviewed a range of students who have received different bursaries and studentships — from core entry bursaries that enabled them to take up their places to small grants that helped them reach their potential, to let them tell their story

We hope these stories shed some insight on a tiny proportion of the lives touched by this vital financial resource at Churchill – 43% of students received some form of financial support from the College last year. It is vital that the College has at its disposal the funds to help those in genuine financial need to ensure that the best young minds, from all backgrounds will be encouraged to apply to Churchill and can thrive here.
