​Churchill Fellowships for 2024 are now open, 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 to improve their community.

For nearly 60 years, Churchill Fellowships have created well-known innovations – including Questacon, the Playschool Theme song, Unit Pricing in Supermarkets, and Neighbourhood watch.

We have also supported every other topic imaginable, from opera, sculpting and bee keeping, through to to water and river health, viticulture, violin making, oyster farming and more. Important social initiatives have covered Indigenous initiatives, disability inclusion, justice and intelligence, child welfare and domestic violence prevention. There are no limits to a Churchill Fellowship.

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

Churchill Fellowships offering an unparalleled opportunity to pursue your dreams and make an impact on Australian society.

“Whether you’re a budding entrepreneur, a dedicated educator, a passionate healthcare professional, or someone with a unique passion or trade, the Trust welcomes you to embark on this extraordinary adventure.” said Rachael Coghlan, CEO of the Winston Churchill Trust.

“For nearly 60 years, the Churchill Fellowship has empowered Australians from all walks of life to make a meaningful impact on their community, their state or territory, and the nation,”

“No academic qualifications are necessary—just curiosity, a desire to learn and to make a difference.”

The Churchill Trust was set up in 1965 after the death of Sir Winston Churchill. 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 our website under ‘Projects and Fellows.’ A series of information sessions have been recorded and are available for people to view online.
