The Royal Society of Biology offers five grants of £500 to student affiliate/AMRSB members each year.

Applications should be for future biology-related projects abroad, but future overseas conferences will be considered. Applicants many use the award to attract additional funding but the Society will still expect prominent recognition.

How to apply

Student affiliate/AMRSB members need to complete and submit an application form by 17:00 on 1st March 2018 to be considered for a travel grant. All applicants will be notified of their outcome by the end of March.

The application includes a 300-500 word statement where the applicant needs to specify details of the conference or project, how the grant will be spent, how the applicant will benefit from this opportunity and the expected outcomes of the conference or project. 

The application must be accompanied by a two page CV including details of two referees.

Eligibility

  • This grant is open to student affiliate and associate AMRSB members of the Society only. Those who are eligible to transfer to the member MRSB grade will not qualify for the award.
  • Non-members can apply for the grant providing they have submitted a paid membership application for student affiliate or associate AMRSB membership. Find out about our different membership grades.
  • Those who have applied for the grant but have been unsuccessful can apply again.
  • Previous Travel Grant (and Travelling Fellowship) recipients are not eligible to apply again.
  • Applicants must be over the age of 18 at the time of travel.
  • Grants are awarded for future travel only - for travel after 1st April 2018.

Further details

Grant recipients will be personally responsible for all arrangements and expenditure including travel, insurance, home and personal commitments.

Recipients must submit a report describing the work carried out with the aid of the award within six weeks of completion. The Society has copyright of this report and will publish some or all of the reports online; some may be published in its magazine The Biologist.
