Society Awards

The Geological Society of London has been awarding medals for significant achievement in the Earth sciences since 1831, when its Senior Medal, the Wollaston, was first awarded to William Smith.

The Society now grants a large range of awards, including medals and funds, every year.  Our Awards page has a list of these, along with the citations and replies from award winners since 2001.
