Scientific Outreach Grants

For schools and young bioscientists

The Society wishes to support scientific outreach events that communicate the excitement of molecular bioscience to young scientists at school, college, university and in the community, to help develop their interests and skills.

Some examples of possible events include: workshops for school students or teachers, exhibitions, using novel approaches to promote molecular bioscience amongst the young, scientific sessions in institutions where the main purpose is to provide opportunities for PhD students or recently qualified Post-Docs to present their work to a wider audience.

Applications are invited for sums up to �500.

In addition to the direct costs associated with an event, eligible expenses can include the provision of transport and/or teacher cover for participating schools. We hope to see applications that promote interactions between individuals from more than one institution or from various schools, sectors or groups. Applications from the Biochemical Society's School Members will be particularly welcome.

The sponsorship of the Biochemical Society must be acknowledged at the event and in all printed or web resources. The Society would like to receive copies of all materials generated in order that these can be shared with other institutions. Successful applicants will be required to write a short report of the activity and complete a list of attendees. Whenever possible, these local grants should be used in conjunction with additional funding obtained from other sources.

Closing date for applications for the next round of funding is 12 September 2008.
