Up to three grants of £1,500 are offered annually for first year undergraduate geography students to participate in a fieldwork project.
The Fieldwork Apprenticeships aim to give students the opportunity of going overseas for a number of weeks during the summer to work as a Fieldwork Apprentice. Each grant recipient will work on a field research project led by an academic member of staff at their university.
These awards are supported through the generous donation of John and Anne Alexander and are part of a portfolio of grants, the Alexander Awards, to support and enthuse students from less advantaged backgrounds through fieldwork. The Alexander Awards also support fieldwork through the Geographical Fieldwork Grants and A Level residential field study courses in the UK.
Deadline: 1 April
Please read the Fieldwork Apprenticeships guidelines and submit your application by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
