Grants and Bursaries

Student Opportunities Grants

Grants of between £50-£100 are available to support career enhancing opportunities for students.   

These grants are available to Undergraduate or Postgraduate Members of the Biochemical Society.

Student Opportunities Grants offer small amounts of funding (typically £50-£100) to assist students with extracurricular, molecular bioscience-based projects that enable them to develop skills and boost their CV.

Example projects can include, but are not limited to:

  • Science communication e.g., creation of a blog, YouTube series, magazine etc.
  • Student society events and activities.


Next deadline

Applications are welcomed throughout the year

To be eligible to apply: 

  • Applicants must be an Undergraduate or Postgraduate Member of the Biochemical Society. 
  • The project must be based around the molecular biosciences.

Applications are welcomed throughout the year but must be submitted at least one month before the scheduled event is due to take place (if applicable).  

This experience was incredibly rewarding, contributing significantly to the growth of The Oxford Scientist and my personal development. It also underscored the importance of effective science communication and served as a platform for aspiring scientists to showcase their talents.
