Regional Grant Scheme

The grants allow individual members of the RSB, around the world, to apply directly for funding to help run an event or activity in their region during Biology Week.


If you have an idea for an event and are looking for some additional funds to help make it a success, you can apply for up to £500 towards event costs. We look to fund a wide range of events and activities, supporting both those that are experienced in event delivery, people hoping to organise their first event, and everyone in between.

  • Small Grants £50 - £200
  • Full Grants £201 - £500

Grants now open

The Regional Grant Scheme is now closed. The next grant scheme will open in autumn 2017.

The Royal Society of Biology are continually looking to increase our reach and presence throughout the UK. By directly supporting our members in the delivery of locally focussed events, we can help promote biology further afield and engage new audiences with varied and diverse biological topics.
