Awards and Scholarhips

In 1978, the Society created the Edmonton Churchill Scholarship which supports a University of Alberta Engineering graduate to pursue his or her doctoral studies at Churchill College, Cambridge University.

 

      This award currently supports a recipient for three years at approximately $40,000 per year. Application information is found here.

 

      More recently, through the Churchill Statue and Oxford Scholarship Foundation, the Churchill Oxford Scholarship was endowed to support a University of Alberta Humanities graduate student to pursue their doctoral studies at Oxford University. This award currently supports a recipient for three years at approximately $20,000 per year.

 

Awards and Bursaries: Each year the Society gives an annual award in the amount of $1,000 to the best third year student in History at the University of Alberta.
