Our Mission / Objective

The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust was formed in 1965 to honour Sir Winston Churchill’s memory through the awarding of ‘Churchill Fellowships’.

The Churchill Fellowship provides Australians from all walks of life with the opportunity to travel overseas to investigate a topic they are passionate about, to gain skills and knowledge not readily available in Australia. No educational qualifications are required to apply, and the topic of the Fellowship project is limitless, provided a benefit to Australia and willingness to share project findings with the Australian community is displayed.

As an internationally recognised award, recipients gain access to expertise from around the world.

Applicants are empowered to design their own projects to explore international best practice and innovation that can be applied in Australia. 

There is a high level of visibility and credibility associated with being a Churchill Fellow, as well as a responsibility to share the knowledge and skills gained overseas with the Australian community. 

It is a competitive process, with more than 100 Churchill Fellowships awarded around Australia every year.

 

Our Services

The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust award and administer the Churchill Fellowship award which includes air travel, in-country transportation, accommodation and living expenses.

To date 4,586 Australians have been awarded a Churchill Fellowship.

 

Our Beneficiaries

The Churchill Trust welcomes sponsorships and bequests from individuals and organisations of goodwill who wish to support passionate Australians striving for excellence, and have their name and reputation associated with Sir Winston Churchill and the work of The Trust.

Sponsored Fellowships can have any purpose or topic for study or investigation, with the description of the Fellowship purpose determined by the sponsor in consultation with the Churchill Trust.

Alternatively, the topic of the Fellowship can be left open and be awarded by the Trust after successful applications are assessed by the Board.
