The Physiological Society offers grants £500 to £20,000 to support projects that increase understanding and awareness of physiology.

The Physiological Society invites applications for its large outreach grants. These support projects that increase understanding and awareness of physiology. Projects should meet the following aims:

  • to increase understanding and awareness of physiology amongst the non-expert public;
  • to increase awareness of the opportunities available to those who pursue physiology in their education;
  • to increase engagement with physiology research.

Collaborative applications, including those between expert science communicators, facilitators of public engagement, artists, musicians, thespians and members are also encouraged. Projects should incorporate training into the project plan to ensure that the project also aims to develop the science communication skills of everyone involved, including early career physiologists. They should also result in a publication or resource for the benefit of society members.

Applications are accepted from both members and non-members. Individuals from all backgrounds may apply.

Priority is given to applicants with projects aiming to reach 16 to 25 year olds as part of their target audience. Previous awardees may not reapply within two years.

Grants are worth between £500 and £20,000.

The Society also offers small grants up to £500 (information via the link below).
