Are you looking for modest financial support for benchwork?
The Fund was endowed by a Trust (Guildford Academic Associates) co-founded by Dr Eric Reid, an Emeritus Member. The emphasis is on methodology, with a preference for cellular or bioanalytical work. Consideration will be given only to applications that are carefully compiled and scientifically convincing.
Applications open in 2022
Due to the uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic the Society decided not to open for applications in 2021, they are now scheduled to open in 2022.
Examples of awards
- Developing and applying a new technique
- Checking the application of a known technique in new circumstances
- Feasibility studies by new staff before they apply to a major award-granting body
How much is available?
Up to £5,000 is available. Either £3,500 (for consumables only) or £5,000 (to cover a stipend to a summer vacation student). Any additional funding sought for the proposed work from other sources should be mentioned in the application.
