Student Travel Bursaries
Every year the GRSG provides Student Travel Bursaries to students to travel to our Annual General Meeting.
The GRSG committee will again offer up to 5 student travel bursaries of £250.00 each, to help more students attend.
To apply for a student travel bursary, you must be a student member of the GRSG at the point of application.
Applicants do not need to submit an abstract to be considered for a travel bursary however those who submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation will be given preference – please apply before Wednesday 1st November 2023
Sponsor the GRSG Conference & AGM
The GRSG is a non-profit organisation entirely run by volunteers. Our revenue took a significant hit during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we successfully resumed in-person events last year at ITC, which aided our recovery, the expenses associated with hosting our events are also rising considerably.
This year we will incur significant venue costs from The Geological Society of London for the first time. Many of you may have read over the past few years that The Geological Society has suffered significant rent increases in recent years; in fact a 3100% increase in rent from 2012 to 2021. Unsurprisingly some of those increased costs are being passed onto the special interest groups.
Therefore, conference sponsorship is vital to help keep our events accessible. As well as covering conference costs, sponsorship income also supports other activities throughout the year including: student travel bursaries, student awards, training events, website fees and more.
The benefits of conference sponsorship this year include:
- Extensive social media promotion of your brand (pre, during and post conference).
- Sponsor mentions and placement throughout the conference.
- Provision of GDPR compliant delegate registration information (job title and company name). We can provide individual contact details on request if agreed to by the delegate.
- Provision of sponsor stands to advertise your products / services.
- Exclusive access to a captive international audience.
For all of the above reasons and more, sponsoring this year’s conference provides an effective method to advertise your brand, products, and services to an international audience. This can provide valuable B2C and B2B opportunities and leads for you and your company.
