Additional Information

Project Details

Please take time to consider your answers and take the opportunity to look at reports and experiences of other Churchill Fellows.

We may not be experts in your field so please write names in full first before using an acronym and explain terms that are unique to your field the first time you use them.

Please use no more than 10 words for your project title. These should describe your project as this will become the title of your Fellowship on our website and will be how people find your research.
You need to choose one of the categories. Please note that there is an Open category if your project does not fit one of the other categories. If your project would be better assessed in another category we may change it. If we do and you are short listed we will be in touch with you in November with the new interview dates.

Please select below the countries you wish to visit during your project. First select a continent, and then select the country. You can select more than one Continent / Country combination by clicking on "Add Another Continent / Country". Note however that you will only be able to travel to a maximum of 2 continents.
