The Murchison Fund is awarded to contributors to the Earth Sciences on the basis of noteworthy published research.
This Fund is awarded to early career geoscientists who have made excellent contributions to geoscience research and its application, in the UK and internationally. Recipients must be within ten years (full-time equivalent) of the award of their first degree in geoscience or a cognate subject. The Fund is accompanied by the award of £500. It is named in honour of Prof. Roderick Impey Murchison.
