In 2018, over £190,000 of funding supported 58 research projects involving nearly 100 individuals. Grant recipients carried out research in over 40 countries across the world, from ever-popular fieldwork destinations like Iceland and Norway, to places very rarely visited by Society grant recipients, such as Kyrgyzstan and Kiribati. Student expedition teams, postgraduates and senior researchers alike studied a great variety of topics, from vegetation change in the Canadian Arctic to urban inequality in Santiago, Chile.

Grants are available for desk-based research, fieldwork and expeditions, developing teaching teaching resources, and for international conference attendence. For enquiries, please contact grants@rgs.org
