The FIG Foundation will be providing scholarships of up to 4,000 euros to PhD students.

  2. must have had a paper accepted by a peer reviewed international journal based on their doctoral research project; applicants should be the lead author, and the paper should be co-authored with their supervisor,

[2] See World Bank Country & lending Groups http://data.worldbank.org/about/country-classifications/country-and-lending-groups

Successful applicants will qualify for a further grant of up to 3,000 euros to attend and present a peer reviewed paper at a FIG conference.

Applications will be judged on the quality of the application and need. In the event that two excellent applications are judged to be of equal quality, applications from low-income and lower-middle income countries will be preferred.

Applications are to be sent to [email protected] with “FIG Foundation PhD Scholarship Application” shown in Subject Line.  Applicants are not to contact Foundation directors individually. Decisions are final. No correspondence will be entered into during or after the competition.


Deadline 1 February 2018.

Applicants should submit the following set of documents in English in the order set out below as a single file in PDF format on A4 size paper:

  1. A cover sheet showing the candidate’s personal details and those of his/her institution.
  2. A 200 word abstract. This should be written in terms understandable to the lay person; similar to a press release and which the FIG Foundation could actually use as a press release in the event of a successful application.
  3. A one page research proposal as per the template below on A4 size paper. Note that the one page limit will be strictly enforced; material that extends beyond one page will be deleted.
  4. A copy of the paper that has been re-submitted to the journal after corrections have been completed.
  5. A letter from the editor of the journal indicating that the paper has been accepted and that the necessary corrections have been completed satisfactorily.
  6. The journal paper’s referees’ reports.
  7. A list of peer reviewed journal publications over the last 6 years using the International Journal of Geographical Information Science (IJGIS) reference list format. See Notes for Authors on the IJGIS website.
  8. A list of research funding obtained over the past 5 years, indicating which grants are peer reviewed or not.
  9. A description of research compliance, the research account and activity auditing structures and processes in their institution. For example, if a scientist spends money inappropriately, are there structures in place to refund the granting agency?
  10. A copy of the ethics approval notice for the research from the institution if that is relevant to the grant application. If ethics clearance is not required, then this should be stated in the application.
  11. A budget indicating how the funds will be spent and a one page justification of the budget. Note that as a general rule, equipment will not be funded. Travel to FIG Conferences to present results and tuition fees may be included in the budget. Per diems for field work will not be funded, but reasonable actual costs of field work are refundable.
