The Winston Churchill Foundation of the United States has named Harvard senior Alison Miller among its 2008-09 scholars. The foundation’s scholarship program offers American students of “exceptional ability and outstanding achievement” the opportunity to pursue one year of graduate studies in engineering, mathematics, or the sciences at Churchill College, the University of Cambridge. The scholarship covers or assists in university and college fees, a living allowance, and travel expenses, and provides the opportunity to apply for a special research grant.
One of 13 students selected nationwide, Miller will study for the certificate of advanced study in pure mathematics in the Department of Mathematics. There, she will further her interests in algebraic number theory and explore new and related interests in algebraic geometry and representation theory.
