Learn Globally,
Inspire Locally.


A Churchill Fellowship offers Australian citizens a life-changing opportunity to travel overseas for four to eight weeks to learn more about a topic or issue that they are passionate about. 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. 

Churchill Fellows are making a difference every day in all aspects of Australian life, across an incredibly broad and diverse range of issues such as agriculture, health, arts and music, building and architecture, business, sport, science, environment and more. 

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.

The Churchill Trust acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
