Financial support and scholarships

Financial support for prospective postgraduate students

Churchill College postgraduate student applicants are eligible for a range of postgraduate funding opportunities through the University of Cambridge. 

University-wide Funding 

In addition, Churchill College puts aside money each year, as funds allow, to support incoming postgraduate students. The criteria and subjects vary from year to year and are also advertised on the University’s student funding website:

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.
