The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust was established after the death of Sir Winston Churchill in accordance with his final wishes and has now funded more than 3,800 fellowships, with more than 100 Churchill Fellowships awarded nationally in 2013.

Trust chief executive Paul Tys said each of the recipients had demonstrated a desire to further develop their expertise and then use this to benefit the wider Australian community.

‘I congratulate each of them and wish them the best in their exciting endeavours,’ he said.

Applications for 2014 fellowships open on November 1.
