News: Update on this year's applications for Fellowships
Published: 24 Apr 2020
Our plans for Fellowship applications have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Due to Covid-19 we have taken the difficult decision not to open for Fellowship applications this year. Instead we will be focusing on our Covid-19 Action Plan, which includes a new Action Fund.
This Fund is open to Fellows who are already working across society to mitigate the effects of the pandemic in every area of our national life, from frontline healthcare to food supply, rural isolation and more.
We know this will be disappointing for people who have been planning to apply, but we feel it is the most valuable contribution we can make to the national effort at this time – and the best use of our resources given the levels of global uncertainty.
We will be reopening for applications as soon as it is feasible, probably in June 2021, when Churchill Fellowships will be more vital than ever before. To receive alerts about the reopening of applications please sign up here.
