Thirtieth International Geographical Congress Award
The Society offers five grants of up to £750 to assist with the cost of attending an international conference.
The conference must be organised by a geographical organisation, association or union affiliated with, or a member of, the International Council of Science (ISCU) or other such similar international organisation.
Priority will be given to early career researchers presenting papers and seeking to cover travel expenses, although help with conference fees, accommodation, and maintenance costs will also be considered.
