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.

Additional funding for interpreters is available.
Charity Chief Executive Zrinka Bralo travelled to the USA in 2014 to explore community organising models for migrants. Once back in the UK Zrinka shifted the direction of her organisation from a community development model to a community organising model working on social change and injustice. A drive to register migrants as voters led to more than 6,000 new voters for the 2015 General Election.
Migration researcher Jacqui Broadhead travelled to the US and Italy in 2016 to understand how cities can better integrate migrants. She now works with six UK cities to create a step-change in the way migrants are integrated, working to create inclusive action plans and convene a taskforce of stakeholders to deliver change.
