Eastleigh MP Mims Davies has been encouraging her constituents to apply for a fellowship through the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust.
Founded as a national memorial to Sir Winston Churchill, a Churchill Fellowship is a life-changing opportunity to expand professional and personal horizons. The Fellowships support UK citizens from all backgrounds to travel the world, meet the world’s leading experts and projects to bring back innovative ideas for their professions and communities.
Commenting the MP for Eastleigh and Charity Minister Mims Davies said:
“Sir Winston Churchill gave a huge amount to our country and much of that was thanks to his extensive travelling, learning from the best and the brightest around the world, and bringing new ideas and innovations back to the UK.
“The Churchill Fellowship is a great testament to him, and provides huge opportunities to people across the UK, including in our Eastleigh area. Whoever you are, whatever your background, I would encourage you to find out more and put yourself forward!”
This unique opportunity is open to all UK aged 18 or over, regardless of qualifications, age or background. Visit www.wcmt.org.uk for more information, apply by 17 September 2019 for travel in 2020.
What do WCMT do?
These are not academic research grants. They are practical inquiries into real-world issues that the Fellows have encountered in their daily lives. They cover eight universal themes in society: Arts and culture, Community and citizenship, Economy and enterprise, Education and skills, Environment and resources, Health and wellbeing, Governance and public provision, Science and technology.
