The Volcanic and Magmatic Studies Group awards bursaries for student researchers from the VMSG community. We welcome applications for travel funding to assist doctoral researchers who wish to present their work at a conference/workshop or carry out fieldwork for their research.

Bursaries are awarded up to a maximum of £500.

The bursary schemes are intended to support students who are active members of the VMSG community. To be eligible for an award, you must be a research student, must have presented (talk or poster) at a VMSG annual meeting, and have not been previously awarded monies from the scheme. Please see the application form below for further eligibility details.

Application is via EMAIL ONLY to the VMSG Bursary Officer.

Grant Directory

We have also collated a Grant Directory to help students find additional non-VMSG fundings. The directory comprises a comprehensive list of all grants and bursaries that are applicable to students with volcanic- and magmatic-related projects, along with deadlines and links to further information.

If you know of any other student bursaries that could be added to the directory, please contact the VMSG Student Rep.
