We’ve just been contacted by the Scientific Exploration Society Award Scheme who wish to attract applications from our expedition team leaders this year.

The Society has been around for over 40 years. The award scheme is very new, they are just getting off the ground, and have given funding to a couple of expeditions. They are working with new sponsorship partners, and hope to have some juicy awards up for grabs soon.

SES offer funding to individuals leading a team on an expedition comprising some form of scientific research. Awards are usually £500, sponsored awards may be higher, and applications close on 1st December and 1st August each year.
