RGS-IBG Grants Programme

An important way in which the Society develops new knowledge and advances geographical science is by providing funding for geographical research and scientific expeditions. Grants support work in the UK and across all seven continents.

Over 70 grants in excess of £180,000 are awarded annually to experienced researchers working on cutting-edge projects and to teams of young, passionate geographers who are looking to get out into the field for the first time. Research has been conducted in more than 120 countries, from Namibia to Brazil to Greenland.

Explore the grants appropriate to your career stage and start making plans for your project; find out more about the projects supported and draw on the wealth of useful resources.
