Career Paths of Churchill Scholars

Churchill Scholars are very often accepted to the graduate schools and medical schools of their choice before they spend a year in Cambridge and are allowed to defer their acceptance to the following year. (A few graduate schools require deferred students to reapply with the understanding of guaranteed readmission, largely in order to calculate scholarship support properly.)

Some Scholars, however, choose to apply to graduate school or to medical school whole they are in Cambridge, a process which usually entails at least one return trip to the United States for interviews.

Finally, many Churchill Scholars have applied for graduate fellowship like the NSF, NDSEG, and others while they are seniors in college, some apply during their year in Cambridge. The NSF and some other fellowships are deferrable, but the NDSEG is not.
