With the deadline for several of the Society’s grants, including the Postgraduate Research Awards and grants for senior researchers, only a couple of weeks away, now is the perfect time to ensure you have the strongest possible application.
The Society has guidance and information for writing strong grant applications available on our website. This provides a range of topics to consider when formulating your application including ensuring that your project is original and innovative and considering the logistics of the project such as budget, health and safety, and references. This guidance is relevant for applying to the Society’s grants as well as to other funding organisations.
The deadline for the Society’s Postgraduate Research Awards and grants for senior researchers is 23 November, and the deadline for the Neville Shulman Challenge Award is 30 November, with more deadlines in the new year.

If you would like to find out more about the work of some of the Society’s grant recipients, read our Grant stories. These feature Q&As with a number of grant recipients including PhD student Will Harcourt, University of St Andrews, on his fieldwork in Svalbard. He worked alongside colleagues from Norway and Poland to improve our understanding of calving tidewater glaciers using new remote sensing technology. We also caught up with Dr Elia Apostolopoulou, University of Cambridge, whose work in Greece this summer investigated the right to energy justice.
