Thomas Lewis Hamaguchi Hocker, of San Jose, CA, has won a Winston Churchill Foundation Scholarship, one of only 11 given nationwide this year. He will pursue a master of philosophy degree in chemistry at Cambridge University. The Winston Churchill Foundation of the United States, established in 1959, annually grants awards enabling American students to pursue graduate work at the University of Cambridge. Churchill Scholarships support one year of graduate study at Churchill College, Cambridge, in engineering, mathematics or the sciences. The award provides payment of all university and college tuition and fees, a maintenance allowance of $9,000 if enrolled in a nine-month academic program or $11,000 if enrolled in a 12-month program, and a $500 travel allowance.

Andrea Sophia Goldberg, of Albuquerque, NM, has been nominated as the 2002 Yale Henry Scholar. She will pursue a master of science in economic and social history at Oxford University focusing on the history of medicine. The Charles and Julia Henry Fund was established in 1930 by the will of the late Lady Henry, “… in the earnest hope and desire of cementing the bonds of friendship between the British Empire and the United States.” The fund’s income is applied to the provision of Henry Fellowships for British subjects in America at Harvard and Yale Universities, and for American citizens at Cambridge and Oxford Universities in England. The fellowship supports one year at Oxford or Cambridge University.

David Emanuel Pozen, of Newton, MA, has won a Keasbey Memorial Foundation Scholarship. He will pursue a master of philosophy in comparative social policy at Oxford University. Marguerite Keasbey established the Henry Griffith Keasbey and Anna Griffith Keasbey Memorial Foundation in 1953 to honor her parents. In the interest of promoting Anglo-American relations and providing Americans with an opportunity to experience the British educational system, the Keasbey Memorial Foundation awards scholarships to support two years of study at selected British universities. The qualities the Keasbey Foundation expects in applicants are academic excellence, active participation in extracurricular activities, leadership abilities and personal promise. The Keasbey Scholarship award consists of a direct payment to the British institution involved to cover tuition and other fixed charges, a cost of living stipend paid to the scholar to cover board, lodging and general subsistence, and an allowance for travel between the United States and Great Britain.
