EUROPARC Atlantic Isles, in association with the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, awards the Duncan Mills Scholarship Award in memory of Duncan Mills, the first Chairman of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs Regional Park.

Our most recent Duncan Mills scholar, Kenny Auld, recently returned from Sweden, where he examined issues relating to access and sustainable transport in Swedish national parks. He produced a report which makes interesting reading for all those interested in the issue of access in national parks, and he makes several observations of particular interest to Scotland and Sweden.

Full details of the next award will be published here and announced in the new section of this website.

The EUROPARC Federation awards three Alfred Toepfer Natural Heritage Scholarships each year. They enable young nature conservationists and protected area staff the opportunity to undertake a project and study visit in a European country other than their own. Full details, including information on how to apply, is available here.
