Churchill Fellowship open to new applicants

The Churchill Fellowship, a national network of 3,800 individuals who are inspiring change in every part of UK life, is opening to new applicants on 13 September 2022.

Every UK citizen can apply, regardless of their qualifications, background or age. The Fellowship funds individuals not organisations and prioritises people who would not receive funding from other sources.

Every year they appoint up to 150 new Fellows who are closely supported with a tailored programme of funding, knowledge-sharing and outreach nationwide. They are also assisted by an Advisory Council of distinguished specialists in their fields, who help to identify new trends, select new Fellows and promote Fellows’ recommendations and activities.

The Fellowship will be inviting applications for research to be undertaken in 2023 and beyond. In addition, they are launching six new themes for Fellowships in topical issues:

  • Arts and communities
  • Caring for our natural environment
  • Children and young people with experience of care
  • Climate change
  • Resilient economies and communities
  • Tech for all

They will also be inviting applications within the following existing themes:

  • Education in schools
  • Palliative and end of life care
  • Physical activity for healthier lives
  • Rural communities
  • Suicide prevention, intervention and postvention
