am contacting the Diocese with important information for local educators about
an award that offers Australians a life-changing opportunity to travel overseas
and investigate a topic they are passionate about.
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 an issue of their choice, anywhere in the world.
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. The Trust covers travel costs and living
expenses for four to eight weeks, with Fellowships worth an average of $29,000
2020, the Churchill Trust is particularly keen to receive applications from
people living in regional and rural Australia. To help people develop their
project ideas and to provide valuable advice on how to apply, we are
holding information sessions in 20 regional centres around Australia, including
Wollongong on Wednesday, March 4, from 5.30 pm
to 7.30 pm at Cafe Essay and Conference Centre. The
event will be officially opened by Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery and hosted by NSW
Churchill Fellows Association president, Ian Krimmer, a former state media
officer with Fire and Rescue NSW, who received a Fellowship in 1995 to investigate child fire education programs in the
United States and UK.
