Nursing & Allied Health Professions

This award category

We are seeking applications for projects that develop the role and contribution of nurses and AHPs in the delivery and leadership of an effective healthcare system in the UK, putting patients first and making best use of available resources.

We are also keen to hear from those involved with the integration of health and social care, including projects focused on health promotion and disease prevention in all settings.

If you are not a Nurse or AHP, or the remit of your project is wider, you might be interested in our Healthcare category.

We are open for applications from 27 April to 18 September 2018, for travel in 2019.

This is a joint project with the Burdett Trust for Nursing, the Royal College of Nursing and FoNS Centre for Nursing Innovation.

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 over 18. We particularly welcome applicants who would not find funding elsewhere.

Additional funding for interpreters is available.
