The Churchill Travelling Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for UK citizens, from all backgrounds and every corner of the UK, to acquire innovative ideas abroad. In the process they gain fresh perspectives on their own field of interest and return with enhanced expertise, able to be more effective at work and in their contribution to the community.
The knowledge exchange is two-way with long-lasting connections made between Fellows and their hosts, creating valuable overseas networks.
We receive around 1,200 applications every year and award around 100 Fellowships annually. In 2015, to mark our 50th anniversary, we awarded a record number of 150 Fellowships.
What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone?
Winston Churchill in Dundee, Scotland, on 10 October 1908
