Each year the BGA contributes to the advancement of a career in technical subjects.
The award provides financial support of up to £1,000 for BGA members wanting to 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 and the association is 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 members at an early stage of their career.
Applications can be submitted at any time, but will be assessed twice a year.
Applications comprising a fully completed application form and referee form received by the secretary of the BGA not later than 31 May and 30 November are reviewed shortly thereafter.
The application form can be found on the BGA website, along with a further form to be completed by a sponsor. Both forms should be send to the secretary via the BGA coordinator email@example.com
