Grants and Bursaries

Ambassador Recruitment Grants

Biochemical Society Ambassadors can apply for funding to help organise one Biochemical Society-sponsored seminar or member recruitment event.

Available exclusively to our Local, Student, Industry, and International Ambassadors, we offer funding to help organise local events such as student receptions, a presence at Freshers’ Fayres, and sponsored seminars. These events should be used as an opportunity to promote membership of the Society and strengthen relationships and collaboration between the Society and their organisation.

With this funding, the Society can provide up to £200 to support, for example, the cost of speaker travel, venue hire, and/or refreshments.

How to apply

Ambassadors can apply for funding throughout the year. Submit the completed application form
to our Grants department at least 1 month before the intended event. 

The UWE School of Applied Sciences End of Year Degree Celebration showcased the fantastic work our undergraduate and postgraduate students have produced across the years. This was the first event of its kind for the School of Applied Sciences and we felt that it was a great success, with very positive feedback from all who attended. Thank you to the Society for their support with the event; the students really appreciated the prizes and it really was a joy to award them!
