Scientific Outreach Grants

Scientific Outreach Grants


The Society wishes to support scientific outreach activities that communicate the excitement of molecular bioscience to young people and the community.


Applications are invited for sums up to £1000 to assist with the direct costs associated with an event and expenses incurred (e.g. transport and/or teacher cover).


The Biochemical Society must be acknowledged at the event and in the resources produced. Copies of all materials generated should be submitted to the Society to disseminate to others where appropriate. A short report of the activity and list of attendees is a condition of the grant.



There are two round of applications per year, in September and April. The deadline for September 2014 has now passed. Applications will open again in April 2015.


For any queries please contact education@biochemistry.org


How to apply?


Applications will be done through Review Room. If you do not have a Review Room account, you will need to set one up. Once you have signed up, you will receive an email with a link to follow in order to continue. To apply for the grant, you will need to create a new submission and do the "tasks" required, then "submit your application" once the form is complete.
