Since 1965 over 5000 British citizens, from over 100,000 applicants, have been awarded Churchill Fellowships, to travel overseas to study areas of topical and personal interest. The knowledge and innovative ideas they bring back are shared for the benefit of their profession, their community and, in many cases, the nation. Fellows from every decade since 1965 represented the Trust at the reception, as well as representatives from The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust in Australia, and the Winston Churchill Foundation of the United States.
