The Biochemical Society’s Diversity in Science Grants scheme is now open for applications! Grants of up to £500 are open to anyone from anywhere in the world who has a project that will support and address issues relating to inclusion and diversity in science.
The Biochemical Society is excited to hear from any individual or group with a project that will support and address issues relating to inclusion and diversity in science. You do not need to be a member of the Society to apply and you don’t need to be based in the UK; these grants are open to applicants from any country. Previous recipients of any of Biochemical Society’s grants are welcome to apply for funding from this scheme.
- The Biochemical Society’s Diversity in Science Grants scheme provides grants of up to £500 to individuals, groups, charities or not-for profit organizations. At its discretion, the Society may award up to £1,000 for individual projects.
- Applications must reflect that this grant is a one-time award from the Biochemical Society, and should highlight how the project could become sustainable going forward where appropriate.
They welcome applications from any area of science, with funding available for projects that will be completed by 31 October 2022.
Applicants will need to demonstrate:
- An understanding of issues and challenges pertaining to diversity in science.
- An awareness of channels and networks which address diversity in science, through which any achievements arising from the grant may be disseminated.
- Originality and relevance of the proposed approach in addressing issues and challenges relating to diversity in science.
- How you will evaluate the potential impact.
- Proven research capability and experience, if the grant is to be used to fund a research project.
- Evidence of additional/future funding to ensure project sustainability if catalytic funding is being sought.
What the Biochemical Society will not fund
- Multiple projects from the same lead applicant.
- Projects duplicating existing research for which new research would not add value or insight.
- Any expenses incurred before receipt of an offer letter.
- Projects where the only costs are travel and/or refreshments.
- Applications from commercial (for profit) organisations.
