The Ivor Tupper Fund of the Geologists’ Association

An award in memory of G. Ivor F. Tupper, CEng, FIEE, (1927-2008).

Additional awards can be made of up to £2000, should funds allow.

The award will be made by the Council of the Geologists’ Association to the student they feel best demonstrates both a genuine commitment to the discipline and academic excellence.

Nominations are made by university departments by invitation.

The deadline for applications is 15th November and awardees will be notified by April of the following year.
