“We are delighted to be reopening after a two year pause for the pandemic,” said Chief Executive Julia Weston. “We look forward to welcoming applications from any UK citizen with a vision for change in their community or profession.”

Churchill Fellows are funded to spend up to two months discovering new approaches and best practice in their chosen topic, from innovators and leading professionals worldwide. Then we support them to share their global insights with communities and sectors across the UK and turn their ideas into action.

For the first time, Fellows can carry out their international research entirely online from the UK, or by travelling overseas, or through a combination of both.

Fellowships are open to all UK adult citizens regardless of their age, qualifications or background. We prioritise applicants and projects that would not receive funding from any other source and welcome applications from those with lived or learned experience of the issue they wish to address.

The Fellowship experience is life-changing for many. In our annual survey of Fellows’ impact, the majority report significant growth in their knowledge, networks, confidence and standing – and projects that may have started with local aspirations have often grown to national scale. In the 2021 survey, 100% of Fellows said they would recommend applying for a Fellowship.

This year applications can be made in one of these topical themes:

Applications made this year are for projects to begin from August 2023 onwards.
