Help create and support a representative scientific community with our Diversity in Science Grants.

The Biochemical Society’s Diversity in Science Grants scheme provides grants of up to £500 to individuals, groups, charities or not-for profit organizations to support and address issues relating to diversity in science. In exceptional circumstances, at its discretion, the Society may also award up to £1,000 for individual projects.

You don't need to be a member of the society to apply.

As part of your application, you will need to demonstrate an understanding of the issues and challenges pertaining to diversity in science and the effectiveness of the proposal to address these issues and challenges.

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 potential impact will be evaluated.
  • Proven research capability and experience, if the grant is to be used to fund a research project.
  • A defined time period for the activity (for grants awarded in 2019 it is expected that the project will be completed by 1 September 2020).
  • Evidence of additional/future funding to ensure project sustainability if catalytic funding is being sought.

Deadline 18 October
