The Frederick Soddy Trust was established in 1957 under the terms set out in the will of the chemist and Nobel Laureate, Professor Frederick Soddy FRS. The Trust aims to encourage interest in field studies by providing modest financial support for expeditions and fieldwork which include the ‘study of the whole life of an area with major emphasis on the human community’.
The Geographical Association and the Frederick Soddy Trust work together each year to help primary and secondary schools fund geography field trips. Every year a total of £2,500 is made available for primary and secondary schools. This is split into individual awards of between £250 and £850 depending on the merits of each project.
