Other College Funding 2022-23

The College works closely with the Cambridge Trusts and will be offering 1 funded AHRC place and 2 Cambridge UK Masters places at Churchill College. There may be other funding opportunities for smaller amounts once applicants have a conditional membership at Churchill College.

The College also has some funds to help with conference travel and for financial emergencies which can occur once a student is already in Cambridge. Hardship grants supported by the Dr Susan Lim Fund are also available to UK and international postgraduate students studying at Churchill College.
