If you are planning an expedition that will take place in 2017, then don’t miss the new application deadline for the Neville Shulman Challenge Award. Run by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) since 2001, the award offers up to £8,000 for a journey that furthers the understanding of our planet – its cultures, peoples and environments.
Previous recipients of the award have undertaken biodiversity surveys in the remote mountains of Mozambique, sledged 800 miles across Arctic Canada and Alaska, and lived with an Amazonian tribe.
The award aims to promote personal development through the intellectual or physical challenges involved in undertaking a challenging expedition or research project, and applications are invited from both individuals and groups.
Award deadline: 28 February 2017
