Overview:

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.

The Volcanic and Magmatic Studies Group awards bursaries for student researchers from the VMSG community. We run two bursary schemes, one to attend conferences at which the awardees are presenting an oral or poster presentation; and one to support students wishing to attend international technical and field workshops.
