2023/2024 RGS-IBG Frederick Soddy Schools Award

Filed in Awards by on November 30, 2022 0 Comments

The Frederick Soddy Schools Award scheme was created in 2018 when the Frederick Soddy Trust became a linked charity of RGS-IBG, creating a new set of grants, the Frederick Soddy Awards, to support the school and student fieldwork and expeditions.

Prior to 2018, the Frederick Soddy Schools Award was promoted for the Frederick Soddy Trust by the Geographical Association. Schools often find it difficult to compete successfully for funds from the main grant-giving bodies or to allocate their own resources to field studies. The aim of the Frederick Soddy Schools Awards is to encourage field studies by providing financial support specifically for this work.


  • Awards are made of £200 to £600, and cannot support the costs of physical resources.


  • Open to teachers leading groups of school pupils.
  • Applications are welcomed from UK and Ireland schools planning fieldwork involving a strong element of human geography.
  • Preference will be given to schools which have not been supported in the previous year’s awards.
