Our grants programme develops new knowledge and advances geographical science by supporting geographical research in the UK and overseas.
In 2019 over £196,000 of funding supported 67 research projects involving more than 300 individuals. Grant recipients carried out research in over 40 countries across the world, from Greenland to Myanmar. Student expedition teams, postgraduates and senior researchers alike studied a great variety of topics, from balancing forest conservation and development needs in Liberia, to photogrammetric surveys of glaciers in Iceland.
