"Fellowship of the Society
Is open to anyone over the age of 21, actively involved in geography or
a related subject."
Eligibility Criteria: Guidelines for Fellowship
Someone who seeks election as a Fellow must satisfy Council that
they have either:
a. A sufficient involvement in geography or an allied
subject through training, profession, research, publications or other
work of a similar nature; or
b. Not less than five years continuous commitment to the
Society as an Ordinary Member at the discretion of Council.
The broad base of membership of the Society is greatly valued and
it is intended that the criteria for Fellowship should be interpreted
broadly. Application for Fellowship will require the support of two
existing Fellows, unless applicants hold teaching or research positions
in departments of geography or equivalent in higher education.
Application for Fellowship is open to anyone in the world over the
age of 21 who can demonstrate to the satisfaction of Council that they
bring sufficient geographical or allied expertise or knowledge to the
Society to meet one or more of the following criteria. Expertise and
involvement may come from those with academic or professional
backgrounds, as well as from those with a well-developed enthusiasm for
geography. The points below provide broad guidelines to the approach
that Council will take when considering direct applications for
Fellowship. They are intended to illustrate breadth of compass rather
than to be prescriptive.
The attainment of an undergraduate or postgraduate degree
qualification in the UK, or equivalent from universities elsewhere in
the world, in geography or in allied disciplines that concern the
understanding of environmental, economic and/or societal processes in
the world, or that make significant use of spatial information. Without
being prescriptive as to allied disciplines, substantial programmes of
study, for example, in area studies; climatology; conservation and
ecology; countryside management; development studies; earth science;
environmental archaeology; environmental law; environmental management;
environmental science; geographical information science; humanities;
hydrology; international studies; oceanography; planning; regional
science; social policy; social science; surveying; and transport studies
should demonstrate appropriate relevance.
A wide number of professions can make substantial use of
geographical knowledge, understanding, skills and information in policy,
planning, decision-making and delivery in all or part of their work.
Without being prescriptive, applicants should demonstrate appropriate
relevance in professions including conservation; education;
environmental and geomorphological consultancy and services; estate
management and agriculture; geoscience; GIS and cartography;
international development; meteorology; natural resource management;
navigation; planning; retail and utilities management; surveying;
transportation, travel and tourism; and relevant aspects of politics and
the civil, diplomatic and military services.
Applicants should demonstrate appropriate relevance to advancement
in knowledge or understanding within the sphere of geography and related
disciplines, regardless of the location, the spatial scale and the
specific mode (archive, desk, expedition, field, laboratory, space) of
the research or exploration endeavour:. Other than under exceptional
circumstances, this is likely to be contributions equivalent to final
year undergraduate dissertation level or above. Normally the research
would be expected to be available to others as publications or as
Publications of merit that disseminate advances in geographical
knowledge and understanding, that increase access to geographical
knowledge in education, or that raise knowledgeable enthusiasm and
awareness of geographical issues and the world among the wider public.
By way of guidance as to breadth, scientific papers, scholarly books,
educational books, high quality travel books, substantial reports
contributing to knowledge including expedition reports, media articles
of a high geographical content, the preparation of exceptional
geographical websites and lecture series may be considered.
Work of a similar nature
Geographical endeavour is not restricted to the four categories
above, and the Society's Council is pleased to consider carefully
formulated cases for Fellowship outside of these areas that can be
convincingly shown to meet criteria (a). For example, there are media
and TV professionals, those raising public knowledge through lecture
programmes, and those significantly assisting the Society's development
or that of other geographical bodies and closely related bodies
