The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) are awarding scholarships to the most gifted candidates training to teach geography. These prestigious scholarships will provide outstanding trainees with significant financial and professional support.
As a geography scholar, you'll receive £28,000 tax-free to support you during your training year – that’s £2,000 more than a bursary. You'll also receive a range of other professional benefits to help you to succeed in your training and teaching career.
If you are awarded a geography scholarship, you’ll:
- become a Fellow of the Society for both your training year and your newly qualified teacher year
- become a member of the Geographical Association for your training year
- be offered free training events on key subjects
- take part in a residential fieldwork course
- become part of the wider geographical community
To apply for a geography scholarship, you'll need a degree in geography or a related degree with a proven or predicted grade of at least a 2:1 (or recognised equivalent), or a relevant PhD or Master’s degree. A 2:2 may also be considered if you can demonstrate significant geography-related professional experience.
How to apply
To apply for a geography scholarship you'll need to complete an online application. For further information, please visit the Royal Geographical Society with IBG website.
