GA Research Awards

For Researchers (not open to students): GA Research Awards


Deadline: 15th November annually

Research Award application form (link)

The GA Research Awards are available to all members of the Geologists’ Association of at least one year's standing, irrespective of age and status, to foster research in any area of earth sciences. A more limited amount of funding is also available to non-members for fieldwork. Grants will normally be for sums up to £600 and can be used for any scientific purpose deemed suitable by the Awards Committee. Typical claims might be to support fieldwork or museum visits (travel and subsistence costs), purchase laboratory consumables (although not major pieces of equipment) or pay for dating of samples (although enquiries concerning radiocarbon dating should be sent initially to the Awards Officer before an application is made). Please note that we do not generally fund labour costs or salaried posts. Successful applicants will be expected to submit a brief report (500-800 words) for publication in the Magazine during the 12 months following expenditure of the grant. Applicants are encouraged to submit full-length articles to Proceedings of the Geologists’ Association, which will be subject to the normal refereeing procedure for papers. Applicants submitting full-length articles are not required to submit the brief report in addition.

Completed application forms should be submitted as hard copies and/or electronically to Mrs Sarah Stafford, the Geologists’ Association, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1V 9AG E-mail:
