Scientific Outreach Grant

The Society wishes to support scientific outreach activities that communicate the excitement of molecular bioscience to young people and the community.

Applications are invited for sums up to £1000 to assist with the direct costs associated with an event and expenses incurred (e.g. transport and/or teacher cover).

The Biochemical Society must be acknowledged at the event and in the resources produced. Copies of all materials generated should be submitted to the Society to disseminate to others where appropriate. A short report of the activity and an evaluation is a condition of the grant. Applicants will not be eligible to apply for future Scientific Outreach Grants until a report and evaluation is complete. 

In light of the current situation, the Biochemical Society will be awarding the totality of its 2020 Scientific Outreach Grants during the September run of this scheme, thus extending the current application deadline to 24 September 2020 (in place of running two separate rounds of applications in April 2020 and September 2020).

How to apply?

Applications should be done through Fluid Review. If you do not have a Fluid Review account, you will need to set one up. Once you have signed up, you will receive an email with a link to follow in order to continue. To apply for the grant, you will need to create a new submission and do the “tasks” required, then “submit your application” once the form is complete. This is not available while the grants are closed.
