You have until 17 September 2019 to apply for a Churchill Fellowship which is open to all UK citizens.

There are 150 grants available to anyone who wishes to travel seeking out solutions to the UK’s most pressing problems.

The topics include all the key challenges of today such as emergency response, arts for the built environment, conservation and sustainable living, physical activity for healthier lives and suicide prevention.

The grant might allow a Fellow to spend up to two months abroad speaking to experts and visiting the best projects relating to their topic. They are then expected to share their learning on their return to the UK, influencing policy and practice at all levels.

Chief Executive Julia Weston said: “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to expand your horizons by researching an issue that you care about, with the global leaders in that subject, anywhere in the world.”

Anyone can apply, regardless of age, qualifications, background or seniority, as long as they are a UK resident citizen aged 18 or over. Fellows come from all age groups – from young people to retirees – and all demographic groups.The Churchill Fellowships were set up in memory of Sir Winston Churchill in 1965 and 5,650 have been awarded since then.
