Award Description

Established when Sir Winston Churchill died in 1965. Thousands of people, out of respect for the man and in gratitude for his inspired leadership, gave generously so that a living memorial to him could benefit future generations of British people.

Value of Award

Each grant is individually calculated and depends on the project, the destination(s) and the duration of travel. Our aim is that all travel related costs will be covered by the grant. For more information, visit the grant page.

Eligibility Criteria

You must be:
  • a UK Citizen and have a British passport when you apply
  • resident in the UK
  • 18 years old or over when you apply - or turn 18 by the end of the year

We only accept one application per individual each year. Churchill Fellows cannot reapply.

Other circumstances

If you were born in Northern Ireland, hold an Irish passport and are resident in the UK, you can apply.

If you are resident in the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man you can apply.

If you reside in British Overseas Territories or serve abroad in the Armed Forces or as a diplomat you can also apply.

If you are an Australian or a New Zealander, you might be able to apply to the Australian Trust or the New Zealand Trust.

Please note that the trust does not usually support postgraduate study but will consider projects in which "real and wider benefit to others in the UK can be clearly demonstrated" from the travel.
