Churchill College Chapel Society Trust 

Travel grants

The Chapel Trustees have a small fund to provide for the award of a number of bursaries for undergraduates and postgraduate students of Churchill College. The bursaries are to assist with the cost of some specific travel, ideally having a religious connection. Awards will be made in the region of £200 and the Trustees will request a short account from travel bursary holders at a Chapel service during Michaelmas Term. In recent years awards have supported educational charities in Uganda and Kenya, a choral tour of the Holy Land, and a medical elective in Zambia.

These bursaries are independent of College travel grants and it is perfectly acceptable to apply for both.


To apply for a bursary, write a single document of no more than 2 A4 pages giving details of the itinerary, purpose and approximate cost of the travel.

Send it as a PDF or Word attachment to the Chairman of the Trustees, Dr Martyn Johnson. You can expect to hear the result of your application May.
