Royal Geographical Society is pleased to invite applications for the Geographical Club Award. This program is open to PhD students undertaking geographical fieldwork or other forms of data collection in the UK or overseas. Only UK/EU nationals are welcome to apply.
The Geographical Club is a members dining club which has its origins in the Raleigh Club, a dining club for explorers and travellers established in 1826. At a meeting of that Club in 1830 a new Society, The Geographical Society of London, was formed and this subsequently became the Royal Geographical Society. In 1854 the Raleigh Club was dissolved and the Geographical Club created. The Club has kept close links with RGS-IBG. It has a wide ranging membership of Fellows of RGS-IBG with geographical interests whose backgrounds span academia, exploration, travel, authorship, commerce and the wider world. The Club supports the Society through funding conservation work in the RGS-IBG archives and the Geographical Club Award.
The winner of the Geographical Club Award will receive £1,000.
