    Due to the impact of COVID-19 on international travel, we will not be offering a Churchill Fellowship application round in 2021.

Learn globally, inspire locally.

A Churchill Fellowship offers everyday Australian citizens a life-changing opportunity to travel overseas for four to eight weeks to explore a topic or issue that they are passionate about. As an internationally recognised award, recipients gain access to expertise from around the world.

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

Due to the impact of COVID-19 on international travel, we will not be offering a Churchill Fellowship application round in 2021.


Travel to investigate, return to innovate.

Our Fellows are totally diverse and invariably innovative. Their projects are the result of extra endeavor and absolute passion.

The Churchill Trust can support any worthwhile pursuit with no preconceptions as to what form it can take. This is evidenced clearly by the extraordinary variety of fields in which Churchill Fellows are involved.

Accessibility and Inclusion

The Trust is committed to accessible and inclusive practices, and a respect for the spectrum of diversity. We work to ensure that all of our Fellows, volunteers and staff feel valued and supported.

We welcome applications for Churchill Fellowships from people from all walks of life. It is important to us that we work with you to create a positive Fellowship experience and encourage all applicants requiring additional support, including the provision of reasonable adjustments to discuss with the Churchill Trust Team.
