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.

Churchill has one of the highest proportions of undergraduate entrants from the state sector amongst Oxbridge colleges. Over 100 Churchill undergraduates currently receive a Cambridge bursary, the majority receiving a full bursary of £3,500 per year. Funding Cambridge Bursaries currently costs the College over £300,000 per year. Hardship bursaries are also awarded to both undergraduates and graduates where unexpected and urgent financial need has suddenly emerged.

We have historically excelled as a College around the provision of student bursaries, thanks to the generosity of alumni and friends of the College. It is vital that the  College continues to have at its disposal the funds to help those in genuine financial need. We invite you to lend your support and help ensure that the best young minds, from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply to Churchill and can thrive here.

 

 

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

43% of students received some form of financial support from the College last year. We hope these stories shed some insight on a tiny proportion of the lives touched by this vital financial resource at Churchill.
