WCMTlogo 4    Apply for a 2018 funded Travelling Fellowship 

May 2017
Do you work in the Crafts or Design sectors?

Would you benefit from travelling overseas to meet other people with the same specialism as you? Would you be prepared to share your findings for the improvement of your sector, and the UK as a whole, on your return?

If the answer is yes, and you would like to visit innovative programmes abroad so that you could transfer or adapt them to the UK, a Churchill Fellowship could be for you.

We are interested in receiving applications for projects across the wide field of Crafts and Design.

This category is in partnership with the British Council. Successful applicants in this category will be eligible to apply to the British Council's Architecture, Design, Fashion department for a grant to follow up their Churchill Fellowship. These grants will help with events, exhibitions and further international collaboration.

Read previous Fellows' stories and work in this area.

A Fellowship allows you to go overseas and look at good practice and innovative programmes so that you can return to the UK and share the new ideas for the improvement of your sector or trade.

Additional funding for interpreters is available as part of this category.

In 2018, we will be investing £1.5 million in UK citizens, by awarding 150 Travelling Fellowships. We send people from all walks of life and every corner of the UK, on an overseas travel sabbatical.
Would you or someone you know benefit from this experience?

What is a Travelling Fellowship?
The Trust awards travel grants to men and women who will be able to undertake research overseas and on their return to the UK disseminate their new knowledge and examples of good practice.

Applicants must demonstrate that their project will have a wider benefit within their community or field, in addition to their own personal development.
