On Friday 23 September 2016, the Society celebrated 60 years of our Expedition and Geographical Fieldwork Grant schemes. Grant recipients from across the six decades shared their experiences of scientific expeditions across the generations and celebrated this fantastic milestone with us.
Sir Ranulph Fiennes, recipient of three Expedition grants hosted three other past grant recipients, Alun Hubbard, Rosie Trevelyan and Andy Eavis. Each speaker provided the audience with a glimpse of their experiences from their expeditions and the occasion as a whole captured the essence of what grant giving can do and has done for many people over the 60 years.
Recognising the importance of supporting the next generation of field researchers, the Society is combining the anniversary of the Expeditions and Geographical Fieldwork Grants with our current fundraising appeal to grow our grant-giving into the future and to help secure these schemes in perpetuity. As many of you who have been awarded a grant by the Society will know, they provide invaluable personal experiences and a wealth of learning opportunities. Those experiences often shape peoples’ lives and help them to develop their potential.
