Congratulations to the four successful recipients of the 2024 FIG Foundation Young Surveyor Grants! 

January 2024

The four recipients will be attending and participating in all activities of FIG Working Week 2024 and the 8th FIG Young Surveyors Network Conference 18-23 May in Accra, Ghana. 

A total of 132 applications were received. With so many high-quality applications it was extremely difficult selecting the four successful applicants. 

We highly encourage those not selected to apply for future FIG Foundation grant opportunities.

Wishing all young surveyors the best in your career in surveying. As Walt Disney famously stated “If you can dream it, you can do it”.

Do you want to sponsor the registration fee for a Young Surveyor?

Has this inspired you? Already for several years we have had a contribution "The Brock Gift for the Future" to cover the registration fee of two local Young Surveyors to attend the Young Surveyors Conference. This has been a nice gesture and an immense help locally to have two dedicated young surveyors attend the event. Our local organisers has found some good representatives. Again this year, we have with thanks received this donation fto cover the regsitration of two Young Surveyors.

This year, there is a special fee for both the Young Surveyors Conference AND the entire Working Week of 260 USD. You can help a Young Surveyor to attend by donating 260 USD. Look out for the announcement and how to sign up for this or write an email to if you would like to sponsor a Young Surveyor.
