Learn globally, inspire locally.

Churchill Fellowships offer a diverse range of people from all walks of life an opportunity to travel overseas for four to eight weeks to explore a topic or issue that they are passionate about.

No prescribed qualifications are required in order to apply for a Churchill Fellowship, and the topic of your proposed project is limitless, provided a benefit to Australia and willingness to share your findings with the Australian community is evident.

Become a Fellow

Churchill Fellows make a difference in all aspects of Australian life, across an incredibly broad and diverse range of topics and issues such as agriculture, health, arts and music, building and architecture, business, sport, science, environment and more.

As an internationally recognised award, Churchill Fellows gain access to expertise from around the world.

Applicants are empowered to design their own projects to explore international best practice and innovation that can be applied in Australia.
