Alexander Awards: Field Apprenticeships

Up to three 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)


2017 Field Apprenticeships recipients:

  Charlotte Day (University of Hertfordshire). 'Ecological Consequences of Glacio-Fluvial Sediment Transfer'

  Jessica Bracken (Queen Mary University of London). 'Small-scale glacial erosional landforms in present and past glacial environments'

  Eleisha Lord, Zayd Abid-Waheed, Giorgia Frost, Joshua Ballard (University of Salford). 'Salford Alpine Glacier Project'

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.
