Information session Broken Hill Thursday 28 February 2018  – Broken Hill Civic Centre 5.30pm – 7.30pm

Every year more than 100 Australians are awarded a Churchill Fellowship so they can bring their ideas to life. This prestigious yet accessible award enables recipients to travel independently overseas, for four to eight weeks, so they can meet with leaders in their chosen field of endeavour to gain and exchange knowledge and experience. No prescribed qualifications are required to apply and the scope of projects people can propose is limitless, providing the applicant demonstrates a willingness to share the knowledge gained and there are evident benefits to their wider community, industry or profession.

People interested in applying for a Churchill Fellowship are encouraged to attend the first ever Information Session to be held in Broken Hill by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, on Thursday, February 28, at the Civic Centre, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. The session is one of 24 regional events being held around Australia this year, as part of a concerted effort by the Churchill Trust to encourage more people from regional and rural communities to apply.
