If you are awarded a geography scholarship, you’ll:

  • become a Fellow of the Society during your training year
  • be offered professional training and subject knowledge updates 
  • take part in a residential fieldwork course
  • become part of the wider geographical community

Additionally, you must have a geography or related degree with a proven or predicted grade of at least 2:1 or a recognised equivalent (a 2:2 may also be considered if you can demonstrate significant geography-related professional experience). Alternatively, you could be awarded a scholarship if you have a relevant PhD or Master’s degree.
