From 16 May overseas research grants will be made available to professionals working in the environment sector, and others, for non-academic studies of the best ideas and practice to be found anywhere in the world.
Churchill Fellowships are travel grants that fund dedicated and dynamic individuals to research innovative ideas and best practice overseas, then bring their global insights back to the UK and make change happen in their professions and communities. Fellowships are available in 12 fields of interest, including the Environment category. Examples of past Fellows who have explored environmental issues are here.
Julia Weston, Chief Executive of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, said:
"Environmental issues have reached the top of the public agenda and new ideas are needed. We face a range of challenges, from climate change, to biodiversity loss, to air pollution. These Churchill Fellowships will seek inspiration from the world’s best projects and practice for this growing area of need."
Everyone can apply for a Churchill Fellowship, regardless of age, background or qualifications, so long as they are a UK citizen aged 18 or over. To apply, or for more details, visit wcmt.org.uk. Deadline for applications is 17 September 2019 for travel in 2020.
