There's no excuse not to get lost in your work this Summer. Trawling the worldwideweb we found two standout fellowships that will give you the time, space and funds to go explore.
Wildsam Travel Fellowship
Wildsam is an American travel brand built upon telling true stories of place. Their field guides to American cities have that nostalgic Americana vibe, where a little dream goes a long way, and the sun seems to be permanently setting. It's that twinkle of the American Dream in the eye that we love about them. In that same pioneering yet wistful vein, their fellowship is inspired by the epic undertaking that was Federal Writer's Project of the Great Depression era. This Summer they offer two travellers the chance to head out on a road trip to explore American heritage and culture, using the visual, written or digital tools of your trade to capture the stories, people and places you find along the way. They'll make their selection of two travel fellows by June 1st, so fix up, look sharp people!
Winston Churchill Memorial Trust
Churchill was a prolific traveller and writer throughout his career, and this trust exists to open horizons and bring the best of the world back home. The fellowships offer the time and space for British citizens travel overseas and bring fresh ideas and solutions back for the benefit of others in the UK. Over 100 fellowships are awarded each year in eclectic fields from craft to horticulturalists to educators, with the intention of sharing their learnings when they return. Worthwhile for a thoughtful and impactful project. You have until September 22nd to get thinking and apply.
