From 2015, the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, in partnership with the British Council, is offering overseas Travelling Fellowships for Designers in the applied arts (architecture, interiors, product and graphic design). These Fellowships are normally for 6 weeks travel overseas with an average grant of over £6,000, and awarded for projects that add to international collaboration and understanding, and bring back knowledge and best practice for the benefit of others in the UK.
Successful applicants will then be eligible to apply to the British Council's Architecture, Design, Fashion department for a grant to follow up their Churchill Fellowship and help with events, exhibitions and further international collaboration.
Applications are now open for the 2017 Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowships, which include a strand for Designers in partnership with the British Council. This is the third and final year of the partnership.

The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust was established when Sir Winston Churchill died in 1965. The Trust’s objective for the Travelling Fellowships is to provide opportunities for British citizens to go abroad on a worthwhile enterprise of their own choosing, with the aim of enriching their lives by their wider experience – through the knowledge, understanding, and/or skills they gain - and, on their return, enhancing the life of their community by their example and the dissemination of the benefit of their travels. These opportunities are provided to people of any age, gender, ethnicity or religion, with or without educational qualifications, and in any occupation or none.
