The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust 2017 Travelling Fellowships are now open for applications.

A Fellowship allows you to go overseas and look at best practice and innovative programmes so that you can return to the UK and disseminate the new ideas for the improvement of your hospital, organisation or community.

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 best practice.

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

Nursing and Allied Professions category:

The Trust is looking for people who work in health promotion and disease prevention, and those involved in the integration of health and social care. They are particularly interested in applications focused on putting patients first and making the best use of available resources. They also welcome projects on the role and contribution of Nurses and Allied Health Professionals in the delivery and leadership of an effective healthcare system in the UK.

This is a joint project with the Burdett Trust for Nursing, the Royal College of Nursing and FoNS Centre for Nursing Innovation.
