Grants, schemes and awards

During this time of uncertainty, it is important to us that the science community still has access to funding.

If you are a current award holder, view our FAQs for information about how we are working to reduce the impact of the evolving global health crisis on you, your team and your research.

The Society will continue to support excellent research and researchers in the UK and internationally. We will be aiming to minimise the impact of the coronavirus on funded activities as far as possible. We will work with award holders and host organisations to ensure that fair and appropriate support is in place. Please visit our grants information page which will be regularly updated with the latest developments.

For any queries, please contact the grants team, who will continue to provide you with the support and information you require when making grants applications and managing your awards.
