Churchill Fellowship Opportunities for Emergency Responders

Apply now, 2022 Churchill Fellowship applications are now open and will close Thursday 28 April.

Churchill Fellowships offer a diverse range of people from all walks of life an opportunity to travel overseas for four to eight weeks to explore a topic or issue that they are passionate about. We encourage applications from all sectors of the community and in any field or topic of interest.

No prescribed qualifications are required in order to apply for a Churchill Fellowship, and the topic of your proposed project is limitless, provided a willingness to share your findings with the Australian community is evident.

Applicants are empowered to design their own projects to explore international best practice and innovation that can be applied in Australia.

A series of virtual information sessions based around specific themes is being held to inspire project ideas and guide people through the application process. Each session features existing Churchill Fellows sharing their experiences, and live Q&As.
