A Churchill Fellowship is a remarkable opportunity to travel overseas for a minimum of four and a maximum of about eight weeks to investigate a topic that you are passionate about and have experience in. It is for anyone who feels that they have exhausted opportunities within Australia and would like to see what overseas currently has to offer. Every application is assessed based on merit, a demonstrated need for the proposed project, the perceived benefit to Australia and a willingness to share the overseas findings and knowledge with the Australian community.


Churchill Fellowship can offer you (as an Australian citizen) the remarkable opportunity to travel overseas to investigate a topic or an issue that you are passionate about.

It is for anyone who has exhausted alternatives within Australia and would like to see what other countries are doing successfully in a similar space to inspire new ideas, innovation, and excellence.

The high international regard for Churchill Fellowships provides a pathway for Churchill Fellows to access expertise from around the world that is not typically available to everyone, expanding your knowledge and experience for the benefit of Australian society.

There is a high level of visibility and credibility associated with being a Churchill Fellow.

No prescribed qualifications are required in order to apply for a Churchill Fellowship, however, the Fellowship is NOT designed to enable applicants to complete tertiary qualifications.

The subject of your proposed project is limitless provided a benefit to Australia is evident and a willingness to share the knowledge gained with Australia is displayed.

100+ Fellowships will be available for award in 2020.
