The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust (WCMT) is currently accepting applications for fellowships across a range of different areas of research, which includes a category of special interest to IHBC members: ‘environment, conservation and sustainable living’, and has a deadline of 19 September.
The WCMT writes:
Every year WCMT invite applications from across a range of different areas of research, or categories. Their Advisory Council carefully selects these categories according to the challenges facing UK society. A number of categories are delivered in partnership with organisations who are experts in the funded area. These partnerships usually run for three years and offer our Fellows opportunities to share their findings, and exchange ideas and best practice with relevant networks of professionals.
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. Would time overseas meeting others in your specialism and sharing ideas and good practice benefit your work? 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.
One of the categories for a travelling fellowship, which may be of interest to IHBC members, is ‘Environment, Conservation and Sustainable Living’ `This category is supported by The Frank Jackson Foundation who are jointly funding Fellowships that promote environmental education and public awareness of environmental issues. Additional funding for interpreters is available.
