Your Fellowship project
This is your opportunity to outline the project that you wish to research abroad during your Fellowship. Please take time to consider your answers and look at the reports
of other Churchill Fellows. (Bear in mind that we may not be specialists in your particular field. So the first time you use an acronym, please write the name in full; and if using any technical terms, please explain them.)
Project title *
give your project a simple and clear title of less than 10 words. This will be
used as the title of your Fellowship, and is how people will find your project
on our website, so do make it relevant and accessible.
Award categories *
You need to apply in one of our award categories
. If several seem suitable, choose the most relevant one. (If we feel your project fits better in another category, we will change it and let you know. That may affect your interview dates, but it will not affect your chances of success.). Please choose the Open category for projects that do not fit any other category.
Places you plan to visit *
Please select below the countries you wish to visit during your project. The number of countries should allow you sufficient time in each to complete your research. We prefer you to visit no more than two continents. (If you need to visit more, please explain in the question further down.)
First select a continent and then select the country. You can select more than one by clicking on 'Add Another Continent / Country'.
Duration of travel *
Please type in this box the total number of weeks that you will spend abroad to research your project. You can travel for a minimum of 4 weeks and a maximum of 8 weeks.
What is the context of your project? *
Please describe the problem your project will address, why you personally want to do this, and why it requires researching overseas.
What are the aims of your project? *
Please describe what you intend to achieve as a result of your project, and what additional knowledge or understanding it will contribute to existing practices or policies.
How will you carry out your project? *
Please describe in outline how you propose to achieve your aims. It is important to include why your destination countries offer essential insights (ideas, solutions, models). If you wish to visit more than two continents, please explain why.
How will you share your findings back in the UK? *
Please tell us your thoughts and plans for sharing or implementing your findings, and what would be the next steps for your project when you return. This might include attending conferences, starting a pilot project, influencing policy-makers or your workplace. We are interested in how you see the Fellowship informing your future work.
What will be the benefits of your project? *
Please describe the benefits or impacts of your project, for yourself and for others in your community or sector. What change would you hope to make as a result of your Fellowship?
