Yorkshire Geological Society Research Fund
The YGS Research Fund provides grants to individuals or small groups to support research in the Earth Sciences with a preferred, but not exclusive, connection to the North of England - this may be by birth, education, affiliation to a research establishment or research on the geology and landscape of the region itself. The scope of eligible research is broad, and the Society anticipates making at least one award per year to applicants who are working independently of formal supervision and financial support, especially where this may facilitate publication.
Awards up to £1000 will normally be made on each occasion, though the Society may consider larger awards in cases of exceptional merit. Funding may be used to augment existing research but applications must demonstrate that the award is supporting a specific project or activity that is not otherwise funded by a grant from another source.
