Yorkshire Geological Society Fearnsides Award
The YGS Fearnsides Award provides a grant of up to £500 to support research by early career Earth Scientists with a connection to the North of England. Awards are intended to support clearly specified research or activities that add value and impact to an undergraduate or postgraduate project, such as presenting research outcomes at a major conference or following up a newly identified research opportunity.
Awards are considered not only on the merit of the proposed activity but also on the potential benefits for the career development of the applicant. Please note that these awards are not intended to fund undergraduate dissertations in themselves, but may support research or communication opportunities emerging from such a dissertation after completion of a degree.
