Genetics Society Public Engagement Grants Grants provide up to £5,000 to members of the Genetics Society to cover costs associated with travel and materials for public engagement activities relevant to Genetics.

A two-tier system is in operation, allowing both small and larger scale projects to be assessed:

  • Applications for Tier 1 will be considered for small activities, costing up to £1000.
  • Applications for Tier 2 will be considered for larger activities, costing from £1-5000.

For public engagement activities located outside of the UK, a strong link with the UK must be demonstrated for the application to be eligible.

Successful applicants must:

  • acknowledge Genetics Society support at their activity or event
  • feature the Genetics Society logo in any new promotional items produced

Where possible, applications should be submitted at least three months in advance of the project start date. A decision would normally be expected within four weeks.


Application deadlines are @ midnight on 1st March and 1st September.

Membership cost (yearly): undergraduate member - £5, postgraduate member - £15, full member - £25
