Our Students Bursaries help our Undergraduate and Postgraduate members attend a range of Biochemical Society events or online courses.
The maximum bursary available for a Scientific Meeting is £200 if the meeting is taking place within your country of residence, or £300 if you are required to travel outside your country of residence to attend the meeting. The maximum bursary available for a Training Event or Course is £100 within your country of residence or £150 if travelling outside of your country of residence. For a Society online course virtual meeting or to access on-demand content the cost of the registration fee will be covered.
Please note that bursaries are given on a first come, first served basis. Please apply early to avoid disappointment.
