Geomorphological Outreach Grant

Deadline(s): Normally 1 February and 30 September*

Maximum Value: £1000

The Geomorphology Outreach Grant supports projects that seek to promote geomorphology as a science and/or the British Society for Geomorphology to a general public audience and in education. Supported projects should not be self-contained and will provide either experiences or resources that can be used by the wider Membership and geomorphological community to enhance their own activities. For example, an application to support an exhibit within a festival will be expected to return documentation on evaluation, lessons learned, and suggestions for best practice to be shared with the Membership, or an application to run school workshops should provide copies of their resources and lesson plans to share. All applications must demonstrate the benefit of the project to the Society.

Examples of benefits for the Society –

  • Increases public understanding and interest in geomorphology
  • Stimulates discussion about geomorphology and its relevance to global issues and society
  • Encourages and supports the teaching of geomorphology at all levels of education
  • Equips people (eg, Members, Teachers) to further geomorphology outreach and education

Costs we cannot cover –

  • Salary costs
  • Purchasing of computer and camera equipment unless integral to the application
