Annual Report

We’re pleased to share the Churchill Trust’s 2021-22 annual report.

For the first time in the Trust’s 56-year history, we did not have an application round for new Fellowships, so in 2021 we focused on helping Fellows accelerate momentum from their Fellowships as well as strengthening our approach and preparing for Churchill Fellowships in the future.

We’ve changed the Trust’s constitution to broaden eligibility for Churchill Fellowships to include Australian permanent residents, and introduced the option of domestic travel for people living in remote communities. We put in place virtual research options to broaden access to Churchill Fellowships for people living with disability or significant caring responsibilities that make physical travel overseas unviable. With the support from one of our Patrons, Prof Tom Calma, we established an Indigenous Churchill Fellows Network to help draw together the collection experience of our Fellows and encourage First Nations applicants. We also developed our first Reconciliation Action Plan.

We’ve accomplished a lot, and this year’s annual report reflects that. A huge thanks to our dedicated team, board, volunteers, partners, sponsors and our Churchill Fellows.

Our goal is to bring together the collective wisdom and experience of our First Nations Churchill Fellows and members of our broader networks with the aim of increasing understanding, collaboration, and opportunity for impact within our communities, as well as to generate opportunities for future First Nations applicants… read more here.
