Just wondering whether you’ve already alerted the Social Business sector and others involved in making communities work to the possibility of winning a Churchill Fellowship for 2013. They’ll have to be quick to apply as applications are due by 2nd October, but if someone is keen to go abroad and has a really good project idea which will help them in their work back in the UK then this is a great opportunity. (I gained one back in 1988 and it was life changing!).
Remarkably they are very little known and despite giving out over 100 fellowships a year only receive just over a 1000 applications. Grants averaging £6,000 for a trip lasting 5 – 6 weeks were given last year and 113 people are currently undertaking their trips traveling to 56 different countries. The money covers travel and accommodation etc.
