Black and mixed Black heritage students are significantly under-represented within the fields of geography and geoscience.
The scholarships will:
Help to promote geography and geoscience as a positive life choice for students
Provide financial and other support for students throughout their studies
Increase the number of Black and mixed Black heritage students studying and working within the disciplines.
There will be two awards made every academic year:
1) Undergraduate Award of £30,000 to study geography or geoscience (£10,000/yr). The award can be spent on fees or maintenance.
2) Masters Award of £20,000 (full time 1 year masters) to study within the disciplines of geography or geoscience.
