27 February 2017 at 11:18 am
Have you got a project you are passionate about that needs to spread its wings? The Churchill Fellowship is for anyone interested in flying to destinations across the globe in search of new ideas, innovation and excellence.
Apply online for a 2017 Churchill Fellowship from Tuesday 28 February 2017. Applications close Friday 28 April 2017.
The prestigious Churchill Fellowship award is presented to more than 100 ordinary Australians each year, allowing them to travel overseas to meet with industry and community leaders, to gain knowledge and experience for the benefit of Australia.
From medical research, to Indigenous education, to date farming, applicants can propose a project on any topic provided a benefit to Australia is evident and a willingness to share the knowledge gained is demonstrated.
CEO of the Churchill Trust Adam Davey said that at the heart of the Fellowship award is giving ordinary Australians the opportunity to apply for the learning experience of a lifetime.
“What is great about the Churchill Fellowship is that it allows the applicant to create the project they wish to investigate, so they can address what is important and urgent for their specific community, and this often aligns with issues of national importance,” Davey said.
“Fellows return from this life-changing experience enthusiastic and determined to make an impact, and while progress takes time, the results many Fellows achieve is truly inspiring.”
Davey said he encourages all Australians to apply for this rare opportunity.
“Our Fellows are from all walks of life, some are experienced veterans in their field and others are young ambitious people forging a new direction, all wanting to make a difference,” he said.
“Irrespective of industry, area and experience, we welcome all Australians with a passion and an idea to help improve and build knowledge in Australia, to apply for a Churchill Fellowship.”
Last year 106 Churchill Fellowships were awarded with a combined value of over $2.7 million.
The National Roadshow of information sessions started on Wednesday 15 February and continues on throughout March.
