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. We encourage applications from all sectors of the community and in any field or topic of interest.

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

Applicants are empowered to design their own projects to explore international best practice and innovation that can be applied in Australia. Be inspired and read about our Churchill Fellows and the diverse range of projects they have investigated here.

Applying for a Churchill Fellowship

Before you apply, we recommend that you read through the Fellowship Guide (left) and our frequently asked questions to ensure you are an eligible candidate and your project meets our requirements.

If you meet the eligibility requirements to apply for a Churchill Fellowship and you are motivated to travel overseas for four to eight weeks to explore a topic or issue that they are passionate about, and share the knowledge you gain when you return, we encourage you to apply.

If applying online presents difficulties, please contact the Trust’s National Office to discuss your situation as support or reasonable adjustment can be provided. Using a different method to apply can only be considered in exceptional circumstances.

Read our commitment to accessible and inclusive practices.

Information Sessions

Throughout February and March 2022 we will be delivering virtual information sessions about the Churchill Fellowship opportunity.

We strongly encourage you to attend and listen to some of our Churchill Fellows share their Fellowship experiences, impart insights on their fascinating projects and motivate you with what they have achieved since returning to Australia as well as provide you with helpful advice on how to apply.

More information coming soon.
