THE BRITISH Tunnelling Society is offering up to £3,000 a year for postgraduate research into tunnelling.
The awards are open to BTS student members and members who are registered for MSc or PhD study with sponsorship in place.
The money can be used for any purpose connected with the research including special equipment, travel and accommodation expenses to collect information.
Applications should be made by the 31 December, supported by a tutor or supervisor.
These should clearly set out the research topic, benefit of the research to the tunnelling profession and the purpose for which funding is sought.
Funded students will have to submit a summary report on how the cash has been spent within one year of the award and are required to provide BTS with a copy of the outcome of the research, which will be made available to members.
For further details contact the BTS secretary, ICE, 1-7 Great George Street, London, SW1P 3AA; tel: (020) 7222 7722; fax: (020) 7222 7500.
