Applications for the next round of BSG grants will close on 1st February 2022.

Research grant applications may be made by both postgraduate and non-postgraduate BSG members. All successful research grant applications are expected to contribute to the delivery of the BSG missions as outlined below:

To support scientific excellence in geomorphology through:

  • Fostering excellence and increased investment and support for geomorphology
  • Developing applied geomorphological research, having a major impact on environmental policy and practice and providing a public benefit
  • Disseminating new geomorphological research and policy agendas
  • Developing a new generation of geomorphologists equipped to address interdisciplinary challenges.

Details of the assessment criteria and procedures for our research grants are available here. Prospective applicants should note that the BSG will only accept one application per applicant per funding round and that applicants can only hold one grant at any given time.

There are two rounds of grant applications each year - the deadlines for applying for each round are 1st February and 30th September, but please consult the individual grant pages for more information, as certain grants may be awarded outside the usual timeframe after discussion with the relevant committee.

The overall success rate for BSG grants was 43% between February 2013 and February 2018 (215 grants were funded out of 500 applications). The success rate was 39% between Nov 2018 and Feb 2020 (53 grants were funded out of 136 applications).

Please note that it is a condition of any award provided by BSG that BSG accepts no liability for the manner in which the work connected with the award is undertaken. The recipient of an award and their host institution are responsible in all respects for the work and its consequences.
