Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Natural Resources

Grants for geographical research, fieldwork, and teaching. The Society administers about 30 named grant programs in several categories:

  • Established Researchers;
  • Early Career Researchers;
  • Postgraduate;
  • Undergraduate;
  • Expeditions, Fieldwork, and Independent Travel; and
  • Teaching.

Grants support work in the UK and internationally in essentially all aspects of natural history, the physical world, and interactions with human populations.

Topics include ecological surveys; soil and water management; planning of national parks and conservation reserves; natural hazards; studies of agricultural and pastoral systems; studies of particular environments (arid, aquatic, etc.); climate change; and pollution prevention and management.

Most grants are to individuals (not organizations). Grants are made for desk and field-based researchers, research teams, and school teachers. The majority of grant programs are for UK nationals, and/or students registered at UK universities.

Grants range from £250 to £30 thousand.

APPLICATION: Each type of grant is separately profiled regarding eligibility criteria, application procedure, and guidelines for submitting proposals (including calendar deadlines).
