The BGA Fund is for:
- Raising the understanding and the appreciation of geotechnics by the public, particularly pupils at schools and colleges (to further the interest in geotechnics as a career) and other technical/scientific professionals (to encourage the employment of experts in geotechnics on projects wherever appropriate)
- Aiding young undergraduates and graduates in geotechnics and allied subjects (normally under 30 years of age) in their training and experience (including funding of teaching, research and travel, eg exchanges with young graduates in other countries).
Any member of the BGA may nominate a person or organisation for consideration for the provision of funds. The allotment of funds will be determined by the members of the Executive Committee in their role as Trustees of the BGA at one of their regular normal committee meetings.
