Applications will be assessed by an external panel of experts. Interviews are held for some grants. If this applies, it is stated on the page for the grant.
Some grants have specific questions we ask of referees and requirements of who should act as a referee. Please refer to individual grant pages for more information (Geographical Fieldwork Grants, Fieldwork Apprenticeships, Slawson Awards, Innovative Geography Teaching Grants and the 30th International Geographical Congress (conference travel) Award).
Two referee statements are required. Referee details are submitted as part of the application form.
If you are a PhD student, one referee should be your supervisor.
Please send each of your referees a link to the Referee Guidelines and ask them to send the references directly to the Grants Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications will be jeopardised if referee statements are not received on time. References form a critical part of the judging process.
