A Churchill Fellowship offers you the full funding to travel anywhere in the world for 4-8 weeks, researching a topic of your choice that can make a contribution to UK society on your return.
These are not academic research trips, they are journeys to learn about real-world issues from the leading practitioners in the world. And we want you to make a real-world difference with your learning when you come home.
For your travels, Winston Churchill Memorial Trust will provide a grant that covers all expenses, and help with trip planning to make the most of this opportunity. On your return, they will assist you to share your findings with key audiences and make change happen in your profession or community.
They will prepare you for all this, before you travel, with their New Fellows’ Seminars, online Fellows’ Resources and lively programme of monthly webinars. After your trip they will help you to gather your ideas and share them with the wider community.
They also have:
- networks of Fellows across Yorkshire, who they can connect you with to share expertise, contacts and ideas;
- partner organisations who can help with follow-on activities and funding; and
- an effective publicity operation that can advise and assist with spreading your ideas through the media, digital channels, live events and influential meetings.
If you have a cause you’re keen to progress, through learning from the world, then the Trust can help you – as they’ve helped over 5,600 Fellows over the years.
In return, they require you to summarise your findings in a report that can be shared with others, and to develop your ideas into a practical programme of action in your community or sector.
The concept is as simple and powerful as that. The Trust empower individuals to learn from the world, for the benefit of their communities and professions in the UK. You could be one of them.
Applications are now open until 17th September at 5pm. This is for travels in 2020 and beyond.
