The Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) is the UK's learned society and professional body for geography. We advance geography and support geographers in the UK and across the world.

About the Grant

Our grants programme develops new knowledge and advances geographical science by supporting geographical research in the UK and overseas.

In 2023, with the generous support of our donors, over £180,000 of funding has been allocated to support 60 field research and school fieldwork projects, from 36 institutions. Projects are taking place in 36 countries spanning six continents. Topics range from investigating the socio-spatial impact of mining waste deposits on urban areas in Chile to reconstructing monsoon dynamics in the Eastern Himalayas from glacial and ecological change.

Grants are available for desk-based research, fieldwork and expeditions, research into teaching and learning, developing teaching resources, and for international conference attendance.
