Senior Named Churchill Scholar

The Winston Churchill Foundation of the United States named a Case Western Reserve University senior one of 14 Churchill Scholars for 2011.

The scholarship will allow Stephen J. Fleming, who will graduate this spring with bachelor's degrees in biochemistry and physics, to spend a year at Churchill College, Cambridge University, where he will conduct research in a new medical physics program.

"It's great to have a chance to live and work abroad, meet researchers from other parts of the world and learn how they conduct research," said Fleming, a native of Crescent Springs, Ky.

The scholarship covers nearly $50,000 in tuition and other costs.
