We are delighted to announce two funding opportunities,  supported by RGS-IBG in collaboration with the Gender and Feminist Geographies Research Group (GFGRG), in order to facilitate conference attendance and the organisation of in person, virtual or hybrid events to be held in the UK during the time of the conference.

  1. Postgraduate and Early Year Career Researchers £50 bursaries  to support  conference attendance (virtual or face to face).

The bursaries are available for Postgraduates and Early Career Researchers (defined as within 5 years of their PhD) at a UK institution who do not have sources of funding to support conference attendance.

To apply please submit a 250 word statement on what participation in the conference would mean for your research trajectory, and a CV.

Please submit applications via the link below by: 10th March 4pm 


  1. Small Grants  (up to £50) to support UK based in-person, virtual or hybrid events

The conference will be held in person at University of Boulder, Colorado but there is also time and space in the conference programme for ‘in person’, virtual or hybrid, activities within the UK and within the GMT time zone. The intention is to support Covid-safe feminist geography  engagement and conversation which  has not always been possible for everyone over the past two years.

Activities could include readings groups, sharing best practice, showcasing departmental feminist geography research, seminars with invited speakers (virtual or in person or hybrid events), networking activities, creative activities such as collaging, making zines or mind mapping etc. It is intended that during the conference, details of the events will be shared via the conference’s website and other social media outlets.

The conference programme is not yet confirmed but there will be allowance for this type of event on the afternoon 15th June (2-5pm GMT) and up to a two hour late morning slot on both the  16th and 17th June  to allow for such events. More specific details about the timing will be provided in due course.

Funding can be used to support a range of costs including: catering, room booking, materials to support creative and other activities, transport (for guest speakers or activities off campus)

To apply please submit a 500 word *(maximum) description of the planned activities and a budget.

If you have any questions, please email Rachel and/or Deirdre (see email details below)

Please submit applications via the link below by 10th March 2022 4pm.


Recipients of the conference bursaries and  small grants will be notified by: 27th April 2022
