    Projects and Fellows

Learn globally, inspire locally

A Churchill Fellowship offers every day Australian citizens a life-changing opportunity to travel overseas for four to eight weeks to explore a topic or issue that they are passionate about. As an internationally recognised award, recipients gain access to expertise from around the world.

Churchill Fellows are making a difference every day in all aspects of Australian life, across an incredibly broad and diverse range of issues such as agriculture, health, arts and music, building and architecture, business, sport, science, environment and more.

More than 100 Churchill Fellowships awarded to Australians from all walks of life every year. The process is competitive however there are no academic or other qualifications required to apply.


Travel to investigate, return to innovate

Numbering over 4,000 every day Australians, our Fellows are totally diverse and invariably innovative. Their projects are the result of extra endeavour and absolute passion.

The Churchill Trust can support any worthwhile pursuit with no preconceptions as to what form it can take. This is evidenced clearly by the extraordinary variety of spheres in which Churchill Fellows are involved.

Announcing New Patron of the Winston Churchill Trust
