Every year the Society offers five grants of up to £750 to assist with the cost of attending a conference organised by a geographical scientific Union or Association formally affiliated with the International Science Council (ISC)
The awards are for early career researchers (post PhD) currently affiliated with a UK Higher Education Institution. Applicants must be UK/EU nationals. Preference will be given to applicants within 6 years of completion of a PhD, presenting papers and seeking to cover travel expenses, although help with conference fees, accommodation, and maintenance costs will also be considered. Applicants must demonstrate the geographical nature of both the conference and the work they will present.
Priority will be given for conferences outside Europe and North America. Attendance at AAG, CAG or the RGS-IBG Annual Conference is not eligible for support from this award.
Deadline: 31 October
