The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust

Next page button

The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust was established in 1965 as a living tribute to Sir Winston who died that year. Trusts were established across the Commonwealth and the United States to provide funds for Travelling Fellowships. The U.K. trust exists to provide such fellowships for British citizens and allows about 100 people to travel abroad each year. The subjects of the fellowships vary greatly and can reflect either work or personal interests. Different categories are chosen each year, by the Council of the U.K. Trust and the candidates can then propose their own projects based on these categories. The Travelling fellows broaden their knowledge of the people and countries visited as well as enhancing their subject skills, which can then enable them to make a more effective contribution in their employment or community.

The categories are announced in June each year and fellowships are awarded for originality and enterprise as well as the contribution they may make back in the United Kingdom.

"Transportation" was included among many diverse categories for the year 2000 Travelling Fellowships and a successful application was achieved under the title of "Developing Effective Traffic & Travel Information Systems"

The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust is a Registered Charity (No. 313952).
