Senior Srinivas Mandyam Awarded Churchill Scholarship

Churchill Scholar  Srinivas Mandyam, C'20, G'20

College senior Srinivas Mandyam has been awarded a Churchill Scholarship for one year of graduate research study at the University of Cambridge in England.  

The scholarship, which is offered annually to only 15 people, is considered one of the most prestigious and competitive international fellowships available to American students planning graduate study in the United Kingdom. Churchill Scholars are chosen from select universities nationwide in the disciplines of science, mathematics, and engineering.

A Vagelos Molecular Life Sciences (MLS) Scholar, Mandyam will graduate from Penn in May with a bachelor’s degree in physics, mathematics, and biophysics, along with a master’s in physics from Penn Arts & Sciences. At Cambridge, he plans to pursue an MPhil in Physics degree. Upon returning to the U.S., he says he hopes to pursue a Ph.D. in physics with the goal of becoming a professor of physics at a research university.

The Churchill Scholars program was established in 1963 at the request of Winston Churchill to fulfill his vision of a scientific exchange between the United States and the United Kingdom with the goal of advancing science and technology. The scholarship covers tuition and travel expenses, provides a stipend, and offers a chance at a research grant.
