The Society offers two research grants for students undertaking geographical research in the Greater China region (People’s Republic of China, Taiwan, Macau SAR and Hong Kong SAR).
The Hong Kong Research Grant was established in 2003 and is generously supported by the Hong Kong branch of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG).
One grant of £2,500 will be awarded to a postgraduate student on a PhD course as part of the RGS-IBG Postgraduate Research Awards. One grant of £1,000 will be awarded to an undergraduate student. These grants may be used to help with travel, equipment, data collection and subsistence in the field.
Deadline: 23 November
