Legacies Fund

The Legacies fund is made up of small monetary grants made to members (usually younger scientists) to help finance expeditions, carry out research or attend meteorological conferences, for which adequate funds are not otherwise available. Applicants must normally have been a member of the Society for at least a year before applying. For further details about the fund, please contact the Meetings Manager.
