Projects we support cover a range of geographical topics, from volcano monitoring, to adaptations to climate change, to farmers' rights issues. Our grants programme has funded research undertaken in laboratories, archives and in the field in countries across all seven continents.
All projects that we support are required to submit both a preliminary and a full report (unless stated otherwise in your terms and conditions). Failure to submit your reports will jeopardise future grant applications to us.
An online preliminary report must be completed within one month of returning from the field, including three high resolution JPEG images which capture the essence of the project (the research problem, methods and findings).
A full final report must be submitted electronically and in hard copy by 1 September of the year following the award. The final report must include a 250 word abstract, a description of the project and its key findings (1,000 words minimum), digital images that capture the spirit of the project and its results, a final budget, and details of presentations, publications and any other outputs.
Your final report will be kept by us for public reference. Unless you indicate to the contrary in writing on the report, we will allow the entire report to be copied for private and personal use.
The Society would also like to be kept informed of other outputs of your project, whether they be academic papers, lectures or educational resources.
