Churchill Fellowships Information Session - Wollongong - March 4

​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.

Learn globally, inspire locally

I 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.

Applications 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.

Unlike 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 each.

In 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.

We hope that you will help us to spread the word by sharing this email and the attached fact sheet. You can also share relevant posts from our Facebook page or via Twitter @churchilltrust.

For more information about Churchill Fellowships and to register for the information session please visit www.churchillfellowships.com.au.

Applications can be made online until April 30, 2020, for travel between February 1, 2021, and January 31, 2022.

Yours Sincerely
