About Tara Westover

GATES CAMBRIDGE SCHOLARSHIP through SELF EDUCATION
Tara Westover is an American historian and writer known for her unique and courageous education journey. She was born to Mormon survivalist parents opposed to public education. Tara taught herself enough mathematics, grammar, and science to take the ACT and was admitted to Brigham Young University. She graduated magna cum laude and subsequently won a Gates Cambridge Scholarship.

CAMBRIDGE PhD in HISTORY
She earned an MPhil from Trinity College, Cambridge in 2009, and in 2010 was a visiting fellow at Harvard University. She returned to Cambridge, where she was awarded a PhD in history in 2014.
