UCL Geography Travel Funds support 15 young scholars

In memory of Bill Mead and Frank Carter

UCL Geography Travel Funds support 15 young scholars

Professor Hugh Clout reports:

The latest round of awards from the Bill Mead Travel Fund has given financial support to seven UCL Geography postgraduates planning to attend conferences or carry out research in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, and Portugal.

The Fund, was set up when Professor Mead, long serving head of department (1966-81), retired, based on funds contributed by Bill and his friends.

The Frank Carter Travel Fund was established by the late Mrs Krystyna Carter in memory of her husband Professor Frank Carter (1938-2001). Frank joined UCL in 1966 and taught the geography of Eastern Europe at UCL and SSEES.

This year the fund is supporting eight young scholars to attend conferences or undertake field research in Austria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, and the Netherlands.

Next year, the deadline for applications is 28 February 2021.
