A Sutherland woman has won a Travelling Fellowship from the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust.

Sixty-five-year-old Ann Pascoe from Portgower is amongst 17 people in Scotland to be given the grant aid.

It is the highest number of travelling fellowships to be awarded in Scotland for a decade.

The Scottish Fellows will travel to 13 countries between them, across six continents, where they will carry out a wide range of projects.

The purpose of the Fellowship is to gain knowledge through overseas travel which can then be used at home.

Ann will travel to Taiwan and India where she plans to undertake research into early dementia symptoms and the early detection of stress in carers.

The average length of each Fellowship is just under six weeks with the Trust paying approximately £6000 per fellow.

The categories for the 2013 Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowships will be announced on 15th May, 2012 and for online applications, visit: www.wcmt.org.uk
