Introduction

If you are interested in applying for a Fellowship but your project doesn’t fit into any of our annual themes, you are welcome to apply within our Open theme, provided that it fits our general criteria.

We will open again for Fellowship applications in 2023. You can sign up for application alerts by email here.

This theme is for projects that meet our eligibility criteria but are not covered by the other, more specific themes. In addition:

  • Projects based on geographical exploration are accepted in this theme, but only from expedition leaders.
  • We continue to welcome applications in this theme from kayakers, whether as individuals or as expedition leaders.

Please note that competition for the Open theme is greater than for annual themes. An application under the Open theme may be moved by us into another theme if we think it appropriate, but this will not affect your chances of success.

Applications can be made on this website from 13 September 2022 until Tuesday 22 November at 5pm. If you would like to receive further information as it becomes available, please sign up for our ‘application alerts’ using the form at the bottom of this page and we will keep you updated.

We recognise our responsibility to the environment through our Fellowship programme and our operations. Our progress on this is explained here.
