Calling all passionate people - Churchill Fellowship applications open today! featured image

Churchill Fellowships for 2023 open today 1 March, offering people the opportunity to travel overseas for four to eight weeks to explore a topic or issue that they’re passionate about, and come back and share knowledge about international best practice and innovation.

For nearly 60 years, Churchill Fellowships have supported innovative projects – including those well-known ones such as Questacon, the Playschool Theme song, Unit Pricing in Supermarkets, and Neighbourhood watch.

Churchill Fellowships are open to everyday Australian citizens or permanent residents over the age of 18, from any field including arts, science, health, agriculture, and beyond.

No educational qualifications are needed to apply. The range of topics is limitless, and applicants are empowered to design their own projects. You will need to demonstrate a benefit to our community in bringing back and applying your learnings.

The Churchill Trust was set up in 1965 after the death of Sir Winston Churchill, and almost six decades ago, the “Churchill Memorial Sunday” door-knock appeal was held across Australia, one of the largest of its kind at that time.

For further inspiration, check out the incredible projects that previous Churchill Fellows have investigated on the Churchill Trust website. A series of information sessions have been recorded and are available for people to view online.
