To celebrate the work of the Dudley Stamp Memorial Award, we have created an interactive story map to give an insight into the breadth of the award and a selection of the wide range of projects it has supported.
Established in 1967, the award supports geographers in the early stages of their careers to travel in support of their research, and to date has enabled over 400 PhD students and post-doctoral researchers from 80 institutions to explore a broad range of topics across 120 countries.
Sir Lawrence Dudley Stamp (1898-1966) was an internationally renowned British geographer who championed the study of geography in universities and schools. In recognition of his services to education and science, the British National Committee for Geography established the Dudley Stamp Memorial fund from which the award is given. Sir Dudley Stamp had a strong belief in the value of international research and co-operation, and this ethos continues through the award today.
The Dudley Stamp Memorial Award supports research across the whole spectrum of geography from the intersections between sovereignty, territory, and development in Myanmar to the relationship between fluvial sediment characteristics and floodplain initiation in North America.
