Scientific Exploration Society

Scientific Exploration Society (SES) is a UK-based charity (No 267410) that was founded in 1969 by Colonel John Blashford-Snell and colleagues. It is the longest-running scientific exploration organisation in the world.

Echoing SES’s long and impressive history of worldwide exploration and pioneering leadership, it is the Society’s quest to enable the next generation of scientific trailblazers and pioneers with purpose through the Explorer Awards programme. Each year, SES aims to encourage and enhance chosen careers by providing high-profile awards for scientific exploration at the frontiers of human discovery and projects that will also leave a lasting legacy and benefit. SES seeks rising stars, whose passion for environmental sustainability, health and conservation, set them out to become major influencers for future generations. SES Explorers need to be prepared to take on monumental physical, logistical, and global challenges and share the values of grit, curiosity, integrity and leadership that pioneers like SES Founder and Honorary President John Blashford-Snell exemplify. Each winner receives a grant to support an expedition that they will lead, and that will focus on scientific discovery, research, and conservation in remote parts of the world offering knowledge, education and community aid. Expedition reports detailing the scientific research undertaken are produced by the winners and disseminated to relevant organisations, and via SES channels, raising awareness of the issues.

As well as the Explorer Awards programme, members and friends enjoy charity events and regular Explorer Talks and are also given opportunities to go on exciting SES Endorsed scientific expeditions.

SES has an excellent Honorary Advisory Board consisting of famous explorers and naturalists including Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Dr Jane Goodall, Rosie Stancer, Pen Hadow, Bear Grylls, Mark Beaumont, Tim Peake, Steve Backshall, Vanessa O’Brien, and Levison Wood. Without its support, and that of its generous benefactors, members, trustees, volunteers, and part-time staff, SES would not achieve all that it does.
