We offer grants which we have access to predominantly gained from the RGS grant scheme. If available they will be advertised on this page.
Currently we have no specific grants available but we will be reviewing day passes for the RGS with IBG 2020 Conference for those who are overseas or do not have an affiliation with a Geography Dept. Priority will be given to those presenting or supporting the Conference in some way.
