The Volcanic and Magmatic Studies Group (VMSG) is a joint specialist group of both the Mineralogical Society of Great Britain & Ireland and the Geological Society of London. The group, started in 1963-4, provides a focus for UK study of magmatic processes and volcanology through organisation and sponsorship of scientific meetings and fieldtrips. In particular, we organise an annual thematic and research in progress meeting, hosted at a UK based university venue.

Student Bursaries

The Volcanic and Magmatic Studies Group awards bursaries for student researchers from the VMSG community. We welcome applications for travel funding to assist doctoral reseachers who wish to present their work at a conference/workshop or carry out fieldwork for their research.

We will also accept applications for support to cover attendance at virtual workshops and conferences
