Are you a PhD student, university academic or researcher planning to carry out geographical field research? Have you considered applying to the Society for financial support? The application deadline for both the Society’s Slawson Awards and the biennial Gilchrist Fieldwork Award is Monday 22 February.
The Slawson Awards
By the kind generosity of Fellows Paul and Mary Slawson, the Society offers three to four awards annually, of up to £3,000 each, for PhD students intending to carry out geographical field research.
The awards support geographical fieldwork involving development issues with a high social and economic value.
Gilchrist Fieldwork Award
The Gilchrist Educational Trust offers an award of £15,000 to support original and challenging overseas fieldwork carried out by small teams of university academics and researchers.
The research should include a single field session of at least six weeks. There should be strong links with the host country and preferably the research should be of applied benefit to the host nation.
The Award was created by the Gilchrist Educational Trust in 1990 and is administered by the Society.
