Churchill Fellowship for ‘once in a lifetime opportunity’

People are being invited to apply for a Churchill Fellowship and be in with a chance of a ‘once-in-a-lifetime opportunity’ to expand their professional and personal horizons.

A Churchill Fellowship funds people to travel for 4-8 weeks abroad, researching a topic of their own choice that can make a difference to their profession or community when they come home.

Everyone can apply, regardless of qualifications, age or background. You just need to be a UK citizen aged 18 or above. What they are looking for is bright ideas from people who are keen to make change happen.

Fellows can visit several countries and continents, meeting key people in their topic and gaining hands-on expertise. On return they make change happen in their workplace or region, among practitioners or policy-makers, at local or national level.

Fellowships are awarded in these fields: Artists & makers, Education, Emergency services, Enterprise and social impact, Environment, Healthcare, Migration, Nursing, Rural living, Science, Suicide prevention – and there is an Open category for everything else. Young people aged 18-25 are actively encouraged to apply.

Applications can be made the website and the deadline for applications is 18 September 2018.
