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:


2020 Postgraduate Studentships


Gulbenkian-Yuval Cambridge PhD Studentship

 A full PhD studentship in any subject for a student coming from outside the UK to study at Churchill College.

Applications should be made by ticking the Cambridge Trusts funding box in the University Applicant Portal. Priority is given to applicants who have selected Churchill as their first choice of College. Selection will be made jointly by the College and the Cambridge Trusts by 30 April 2020.


Other College funding

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.
