Two Yale seniors receive Churchill Scholarship

February 10, 2020

Yale seniors Jasmine Stone ’20 and Catherine Lee ’20 were among the 16 national recipients of the Churchill Scholarship and the Kanders Churchill Scholarship.

Stone is majoring in computer science at Yale but plans to pursue neuroscience during her time at Cambridge. At Cambridge, Stone will work towards a Master of Philosophy degree in engineering with Guillaume Hennequin, a University Lecturer at Cambridge

Lee is completing a joint bachelor and master’s degree in mathematics at Yale. According to Lee, she is “especially interested in algebraic geometry and algebraic topology” and hopes to “pursue these interests further at Cambridge next year.” Next year, Lee plans to enroll in Part III of the Mathematical Tripos toward the Master of Advanced Study degree before continuing her studies in a mathematics Ph.D. program.

The Winston Churchill Foundation of the United States selected the recipients, awarding them funding to support one year’s study towards a master’s degree at Churchill College at the University of Cambridge. Last year, one Yale student was awarded the Churchill Scholarship.
