Thesiger-Oman International Fellowships 2021

Thesiger-Oman International Fellowships 2021

Deadline: 23rd November, 2021

Summary: Applications for the Thesiger-Oman International Fellowships 2021 are now open. The Fellowships offer two awards annually to post-doctoral researchers to advance geographical knowledge, involving fieldwork, in an arid or semi-arid environment.

Details: Past recipients have studied grazing pressure in the Dhofar Mountains of Oman by tracking daily herd movements, explored Holocene environmental change in eastern Jordan, and used sedimentary ancient DNA to identify past environmental changes. Preference will be given to research in the Middle East and other areas visited by Sir Wilfred Thesiger. These awards were founded with the support of the late Sultan of Oman, Qaboos bin Said al-Said as a memorial to Thesiger.


  • One award is given for human and one for physical geography. Each award is up to £8,000.


  • Applicants must be Fellows or members of the Society with at least three years’ post-doctoral experience.
  • The Fellowships are open to applicants of any nation.
