The Churchill Fellowship was set up when Sir Winston Churchill died in 1965 as his national memorial. The Churchill Fellowship carries forward his legacy by funding up to 150 British citizens each year from all backgrounds to travel overseas to gain knowledge, experience and best practice to inspire positive change in their UK professions and communities, and society as a whole. The research can also be undertaken online from the UK. Successful applicants must demonstrate the commitment, the character and the tenacity to pursue new and better ways of tackling a wide range of challenges facing us today, and use their global learning to transform and improve aspects of UK society.
Applications open annually in September, with proposals invited across a range of different areas of research, or themes. The Churchill Fellowship’s Advisory Council carefully selects these themes according to the challenges currently facing UK society.
The Churchill Fellowship partners with other charities and organisations that have expertise in areas in which they are funding Fellowships, offering successful Fellows active networks of relevant professionals with whom to share their findings and exchange ideas and best practice.
Churchill Fellows come from all over the UK and from many different backgrounds. No qualifications are required. These opportunities are available to all UK citizens resident in the UK over the age of 18. What Fellows share is a passion for making a difference and a desire to share their passion for inspiring others.
The Churchill Fellowship also funds an Archive By-Fellowship at the Churchill Archives Centre, each year.
