If you would like to be funded to travel overseas to look at best practice and innovative programmes in the wide field of Medicine and Health, there is still time to apply for a life changing Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Travelling Fellowship.

 Applications for travel in 2014 close on 24th September 2013 at 5pm.

Fellows gain experience abroad so that they can return to the UK and disseminate their new ideas for the improvement of their hospital, organisation or community. 

Successful applicants will receive an average Fellowship grant of £6000, covering travel, food, accommodation and insurance for approximately 6 weeks overseas.

The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust have partnered with The Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh this year, who are supporting them across this wide category.     

Each year they award over 120 Travelling Fellowships to British Citizens from all walks of life and from all over the United Kingdom, across 10 varied categories. This year they are hoping to award over 130 – a record number of opportunities. See www.wcmt.org.uk for full details. Applicants must be over 18 and British citizens who are resident in the UK.

A travelling sabbatical for those with experience, ambition and the desire to help others, will add real value to your skills and to your CV, as well as furthering your leadership and role model abilities.

Applications are judged purely on project merit, and this unique opportunity is available to adults of any age, gender, religion or ethnicity.
