Churchill Fellowships Information Session

Churchill Fellowships Information Session

Applications are now open for the 2020 round of Churchill Fellowships, a unique award that supports more than 100 people annually, from all walks of life, to explore best practice anywhere in the world.

Unlike more traditional academic fellowships, Churchill Fellowships are not given for tertiary study and no formal qualifications are required. Churchill Fellows design their own projects and itinerary so they can access expertise which cannot be found in Australia, at a time that suits them. The Trust covers travel costs and living expenses for four to eight weeks, with Fellowships worth an average of $29,000 each.

As part of ongoing efforts to encourage more people from rural and regional communities to apply, we are holding Information Sessions in 20 regional centres around Australia as well as every capital city, including 

  • Devonport on February 26, from 5.30 to 7.30 pm, at the Paranaple Convention Centre;
  • Hobart on February 27, from 5.30 to 7.30 pm, at The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel.¬†

Both events will provide valuable information about developing project ideas and how to apply.

We hope that you will help us to spread the word by sharing this email and the attached fact sheet. You can also share relevant posts from our Facebook page or via Twitter @churchilltrust. A media release with more information is also available for use in any publications that your organisation produces.
