APPLY NOW FOR A 2019 CHURCHILL FELLOWSHIP
Posted 14 February 2019
Applications are now open for this unique, prestigious yet accessible award that is presented to more than 100 Australians every year!
The Churchill Fellowship enables recipients to travel overseas for four to eight weeks so they can meet and work with leaders of influence to gain and exchange knowledge and experience for the betterment of themselves, their industry or community and Australia.
No prescribed qualifications are required in order to apply for a Churchill Fellowship and the scope of topics that can be proposed is limitless, provided a benefit to Australia is evident and a willingness to share the knowledge gained is demonstrated.
“What is great about the Churchill Fellowship is that it allows the applicant to create the project they wish to investigate and choose who they want to meet, to address what is important and urgent for their specific community. This often aligns with current or emerging issues of local, regional or national importance in Australia,” said Adam Davey, CEO of the Churchill Trust.
“Fellows return from the experience with strong global networks that provide them with the support and confidence to make an impact, and while progress can take time, Fellowships provide the ongoing base knowledge and motivation to achieve what they never thought possible,” Mr Davey said.
This year, the Churchill Trust is also very pleased to be offering some new sponsored Fellowships specifically for aspiring Indigenous applicants.
- A national roadshow of information sessions for people interested in applying is visiting 32 locations this year, which commenced on Tuesday, February 12, in Sydney and continues around Australia until late March.
The free sessions provide a timely opportunity to listen to the inspiring experiences of Churchill Fellows and gain helpful advice on how to apply.
