A Churchill Fellowship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to expand your professional and personal horizons by researching an issue that you care about, with the global leaders in that subject, anywhere in the world.
The Fellowship will fund you to spend up to two months overseas, meeting experts, visiting projects and learning new ideas. And when you return, the Winston Churchill Memorial Fund will help you to use what you’ve learnt to make change happen in your sector or community.
Not only that, the status of being a Churchill Fellow can open doors in your workplace, your sector and around the world. It gives you the credentials, knowledge and confidence to progress a cause that’s close to your heart.
After their journeys, Fellows say they feel recharged and inspired. They value the time to think, learn and take stock of their subject and their career. They come home with new perspectives and directions – and the drive to put them into practice. Fellows go on to become experts and leaders in their fields, set up projects and organisations, and influence practice and policy in their workplace, region and even across the nation.
Anyone can apply, regardless of age, qualifications or background. Fellows come from all parts of UK society and all walks of life. The only threshold is that you must be a UK resident citizen aged 18 or over. The only criteria are the power of your ideas and the potential of your commitment to make a difference when you come home.
All you need is an idea that can make a practical and worthwhile contribution to UK society, in any field whatsoever. A reason why the idea should be researched overseas, anywhere in the world. And you, an applicant with the potential to make change happen, whoever they are and whatever their background.
You can apply until 17 September 2019 at 5pm for travels in 2020 and beyond. If you would like any support with your application please drop Community Action Wirral a line [email protected]
