Jack Brockhoff Foundation Churchill Fellowship:

Research for the benefit of rural or regional areas in social disadvantage, including disability, or in health and medical practice.

The aim of the Trust is to provide an opportunity for Australians to travel overseas to conduct research in their chosen field that is not readily available in Australia. It also aims to reward proven achievement of talented and deserving Australians with further opportunity in their pursuit of excellence for the enrichment of Australian society.

The Jack Brockhoff Foundation supported Churchill Fellowship is for research for the benefit of rural or regional areas in social disadvantage, including disability, or in health and medical practice. The Foundation may fund one or more Churchill Fellowships each year to Victorian residents only.

The Foundation prefers to fund young researchers in the area of social disadvantage including disability or in health and medical practice, particularly if there is a benefit to rural or regional areas and especially if the outcome of the Fellowship will benefit as many people in need in the community as possible.
