Grants and Bursaries

An important way in which the Society supports excellence in Meteorology and contributes to the advancement of the science is via its two grant schemes.
The Rupert Ford Award is awarded to outstanding young scientists from any part of the world to enable them to undertake research work or study in meteorology or associated physical oceanography (air-sea interaction) at a centre of excellence outside their own countries.
The Legacies Fund is made up of small monetary grants made to members (usually younger scientists) to help finance expeditions, carry our research or attend meteorological conferences, for which adequate funds are not otherwise available.

These schemes rely on donations from the public, therefore if you are interested in donating and supporting the Society’s work, please contact us
