This is a recording of our webinar on what a Churchill Fellowship could offer you and how to apply for one, held in September 2022. It focuses on Fellowships in our theme on Children and Young People with Experience of Care.

Two Fellows share their experience of a Fellowship, from the application process through to their global research phase and on to their work to inspire change in the UK. They reflect on the difference it has made to their professional and personal lives, and the benefits a Fellowship can bring. They are joined by members of our Fellowship team, explaining what we look for and how to apply.

A Churchill Fellowship is a life-changing opportunity to pursue your own vision for change in your community or profession, based on exploring best practice and innovations around the world.

Our dedicated programme of Fellowships focussed on children and young people with experience of care is offered in partnership with Coram and the Hadley Trust. All UK adult citizens are eligible, regardless of qualifications, background or age.
