Alexander Awards: Field Apprenticeships
Two grants of £1,500 each are offered annually for first year undergraduate geography students.
The Field Apprenticeships aim to give students the opportunity of going overseas for a number of weeks during the summer to work as a Field Apprentice. Each grant recipient will work on a field research project led by a university academic member of staff.
28 February (each year)
These awards are supported through the generous donation of John and Anne Alexander and are part of a portfolio of grants, the Alexander Awards, to support and enthuse students from less advantaged backgrounds through fieldwork. The Alexander Awards also support fieldwork through the Geographical Fieldwork Grants and A Level residential field study courses in the UK.
Fieldwork Apprenticeships were awarded from 2008 to 2016 through the Learning and Leading Programme.
