A life-changing opportunity

Have you ever wanted to explore new ideas in a subject close to your heart? Discover how things are done in other countries and bring that knowledge back home?

A Churchill Fellowship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to expand your horizons and make a difference. It offers up to two months overseas, researching a topic of your choice – and then a lifetime relationship to help you spread the global insights that you bring back.

Everyone can apply, regardless of age, background or qualifications, so long as they are a UK citizen aged 18 or over. We particularly welcome applicants who would not find funding elsewhere. Additional funding for interpreters is available.
