Want $25,000 to follow your dream in horticulture?

Thursday, January 04, 2007

The Churchill Trust is an Australian Trust established in 1965, the year in which Sir Winston Churchill died. The principal object of the Trust is to perpetuate and honour the memory of Sir Winston Churchill by the award of Travelling Fellowships known as Churchill Fellowships. The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust awards around 100 Fellowships each year at an average cost of $25,000 each. 

The purpose of the Fellowships is to study or investigate a project overseas of a kind that is not fully available in Australia. Benefit to the community is an important consideration for the award of a Churchill Fellowship.

The Churchill Trust is seeking applications from Australian citizens over the age of 18 years for Fellowships to be awarded in June 2007. Travel may commence from September 2007.

Each of the I00 Fellowships available has an average value of $25,000 and includes return airfare and an overseas living allowance.

The David Young Churchill Fellowship is a new Fellowship being offered in 2007 for the study of an aspect of horticulture.

The Fellowship is being sponsored by 1987 Churchill Fellow Mr David Young who travelled to the USA, the UK and Holland to bring back to Australia knowledge of the latest methods of disseminating horticultural advice by radio, W, telephone, press and literature.

No prescribed qualifications are required.

Merit of the proposal is the primary test and a strong desire to share the results of the fellowship with the Australian Community must be displayed.
