8. Reporting Requirements
- Grant applications will be assessed by at least two reviewers.
- The panel’s decision is final. However, anonymised feedback will be provided to all unsuccessful applicants on request.
Applicants are required to provide a post-activity report (500 – 1000 words) by 1 September 2018. This should give a brief overview of the project, including photographs where possible. The report may be posted on the Biochemical Society website and if appropriate may be printed in The Biochemist.
Applicants will not be eligible to apply for future Diversity in Science grants until a report has been submitted.
The grant of £500 (or £1,000 in exceptional circumstances) is inclusive of VAT and will be paid to the applicant in advance of the commencement of the project. However, if the standard conditions are not met in full or the project cannot be completed as set out in the application, the Biochemical Society may require repayment of part or the entire value of the grant as appropriate.
10. Termination of agreement
The Biochemical Society reserves the right to terminate funding agreements should conditions in the acceptance letter not be agreed or met.
