Winston Churchill Fellowships

A Churchill Fellowship offers Australian citizens the remarkable opportunity to travel overseas to investigate a topic or an issue they are passionate about.

It is for anyone who, after examining alternatives within Australia, would now like to see what other countries are doing successfully in a similar space to inspire new ideas and innovation. The high international regard for Churchill Fellowships provides a pathway for Churchill Fellows to access expertise from around the world that is not typically available to everyone, expanding their knowledge and experience for the benefit of Australian society.

The scholarship will allow you to access expertise from overseas, through meetings, and various programs, within a trip of 4-8 weeks in duration.
