The BGA Fund allows the BGA to provide financial assistance to individual BGA members for further study or advancement of their career in technical subjects.
Eligible BGA members are invited to apply for financial support of up to £1,000 to support their return to full or part time education for a higher degree or higher level of study beyond a first degree. Awards will consist of a single payment to successful applicants.
The BGA Fund Award is associated with excellence. We are looking for BGA members who are committed to geotechnical engineering and who have the potential to excel as geotechnical engineers. Applications are particularly encouraged from BGA members at an early stage of their career.
It is not designed to fund courses or to fund membership of the ICE or similar organisations.
Eligibility criteria for the BGA Fund can be downloaded from this page.
Applications can be submitted at any time but will be assessed twice a year (application deadlines are 31 May and 30 November annually, and applications are reviewed shortly thereafter). Applications must be made via the form on the Prizes page and should comprise a fully completed application form and referee form (downloadable from this page).
