Create, Inspire, Improve: New Lund Fellowship supports research and training in the High Weald

Apply now for the new Lund Fellowship

Does the High Weald hold a special place in your heart, and do you want to make a lasting impact on its landscape and community?

The Lund Fellowship has been designed for individuals like you, who possess a wealth of passion and ideas to enhance the High Weald, to educate, or engage young people, but need support to turn those visions into reality.

The Fellowship is supported by Lund Trust and delivered by the High Weald National Landscape Partnership.

The aims of the new Lund Fellowship are to:


Inspire people, enhance knowledge, and enable the exchange of ideas.


Improve the natural environment of the High Weald National Landscape.


Create a greener economy within the High Weald.

You can apply for funding towards a range of activities, including:

  • Research costs;
  • Conference fees,
  • training and course fees;
  • travel expenses associated with study or study tours (within the UK and Europe only);
  • educational resources; and support required to complete and promote your report e.g. report writing, film production or website creation.

You will have up to two years to complete the fellowship and will be expected to produce a report on your outcomes. We will also ask you to present what you learn to the Lund Trust and High Weald National Landscape Partnership.

The deadline for applications is Monday 15 July and the maximum grant available is £7,500. A maximum of two Fellowships will be awarded each year.

Areas of interest for the Fellowship programme

We are open to a range of ideas, so long as you can demonstrate how your idea links to the aims of the fellowship programme. Examples of themes that are relevant:

  • Improving farming and land management for nature.
  • Building a greener economy that can be sustained by the community.
  • Engaging young people in community, nature, and land management.
  • Species reintroductions.

This is not an exhaustive list, and we will consider ideas on a case-by-case basis.
