The Fund exists to support specific research projects. This means that it does not normally support expeditions, nor does it usually support undergraduates or field work undertaken as part of a PhD or Masters qualifications. In recent years the Trustees have focussed their support on field work in the life and earth sciences, through individual research projects undertaken away from the applicant’s usual place of residence.

These grants are for field work abroad (away from your usual country of residence) in the earth and life sciences.
