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


The grant scheme is currently closed and will open in September for events in 2019

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 up to £200
  • Full Grants £201 - £500

The Royal Society of Biology is continually looking to increase our reach and presence. 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.
