2024 Churchill Fellowship information sessions for Indigenous innovators

Rhiannon Clarke -

This year the Winston Churchill Trust has put out a call for First Nations innovators who have a passion for making a difference in their community.

For more than six decades, the Trust has provided opportunities for gifted Australians to travel worldwide, enabling them to pursue their interests and share their acquired expertise upon their return.

The 2024 Churchill Fellowship information sessions, open to the end of February, detail the Fellowship opportunities available.

There will be a total of eight sessions via Zoom with each session lasting approximately one hour, providing attendees with ample time to engage in a live Q&A and have questions answered.

The virtual sessions are open to individuals from diverse backgrounds; participants don't need an academic qualification or even have to finish school to apply.

The sessions aim to provide a comprehensive understanding of the chance to travel abroad for a duration of four to eight weeks, enabling participants to delve deeper into a subject or matter that ignites their passion.

Acting CEO of the Winston Churchill Trust, Sally Campbell, said they are excited to open the doors for the 2024 Churchill Fellowships and invite passionate individuals to join us at our information sessions.

"This is an excellent chance for potential Fellows to learn about the unique opportunities that a Churchill Fellowship can provide," she said.

"We encourage individuals who are passionate about making a positive impact in their respective fields to join us for these free, online sessions.

"Whether you are an aspiring leader, an innovator, or someone with a burning desire to contribute to positive change, a Winston Churchill Fellowship can help you achieve these goals."

The Trust has curated a diverse range of information sessions for February 2024 to cater to various interests.

The sessions cover a wide range of topics including Agriculture, horticulture and food production; Arts and trades; Community (inclusion and accessibility); Education; First Peoples; Public service; Health and medicine; and Science, technology and environment.

The information sessions provide an opportunity for people to connect with individuals who share similar interests, learn from previous Trust recipients, and gain a deeper understanding of how the Trust can support their aspirations.

Churchill Fellows encourage anyone to join them as they share their experiences, provide insights into their projects, and inspire them with their achievements since returning to Australia.

Notable Indigenous Churchill Fellows have been founder of clothing brand Kirrikin Amanda Healy and mental health worker Jeremy Heathcote.

Fellowship applications will open on 1 March 2024.
