The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust have now opened applications for their 2017 Travelling Scholarships.
WCMT funds British citizens to investigate inspiring practice in other countries, and return with innovative ideas for the benefit of people across the UK. No qualifications are required, just a project and the desire and motivation to improve their community, profession or field.
There are fourteen categories you can apply to, including two new ones: Enterprise and Migration, which have been added this year.
WCMT see enterprise as a positive force in society that creates employment and enables financial stability and social good.
Enterprise increases the opportunity for organisations to improve their double bottom line, an important development in relation to measuring financial performance alongside social impact.
Applications are welcomed from people working within organisations with a social purpose, including charities, and commercial organisations embedding social good across their working practices.

Migration – living well together
Does your work strengthen cohesion and communication between communities? Are you keen to tackle isolation and support community engagement?
If the answer is yes, a Churchill Fellowship would give you the opportunity to visit other countries to learn from effective programmes and good practice in this field.
WCMT are interested in hearing from all areas of the sector, from grassroots organisations to policy makers. They welcome applications in a new category 'Migration - Living Well Together', that support communities to live harmoniously together and realise their economic potential.
