Churchill Fellowship Applications Invited Now for Travel in 2019
Funding for UK citizens to travel overseas for up to two months, exploring new ideas and returning with global insights to inspire communities and professions.
The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust is offering funding for UK citizens to travel anywhere in the world to carry out research projects investigating inspiring practice in other countries to identify new and better ways of tackling a wide range of current challenges facing the UK.
Churchill Fellowships are available to applicants from all backgrounds, professions, ages and levels of experience and fund overseas trips of four to eight weeks to carry out projects that:
- Can provide public benefit in the UK – to a community, a sector or the country as a whole.
- Could not be researched in the UK and therefore require overseas travel.
- Are not already being implemented widely in the UK.
Eligible projects must fall within the following categories:
- Artists and makers
- Emergency services: crisis prevention, response and recovery
- Enterprise: supporting social impact
- Environment, conservation and sustainable living
- Healthcare: innovations for the twenty-first century
- Migration: living well together
- New Approaches to Social and Affordable Housing
- Nursing and Allied Health Professions
- Rural living: strengthening countryside communities
- Science, technology and engineering
- Suicide: prevention, intervention and postvention
- Young people’s awards
- Open category: for projects that do not fall within the remit of the other categories.
Up to 150 Fellowships are awarded each year. The value of a Churchill Fellowship varies from case to case based on the project, destination(s) to be visited and the duration of the Fellowship. Grants usually cover a stay overseas of between four to eight weeks.
The application deadline for travel in 2019 is 18 September 2018.
