BES Student Training and Travel Grants for Developing Countries

The British Ecological Society grants supports the training and development of students and postgraduate research assistants. Grants of up to £1,000 are available.

These grants help PhD students and postgraduate research assistants to meet the costs of specialist field training courses and to network and publicise their research by presenting their work at workshops and conferences.

Our Training and Travel grants are awarded on a first come first serve basis; submitting an application does not guarantee funding.

If the meeting you wish to attend is between January and the end of June, you must apply to the first round. If the meeting is after June, you should apply to the second round.

To Apply When applications open, register/log in to our online grants system, complete your contact details, and navigate to ‘Your Applications’.

Eligibility and Conditions

All applicants are required to:

  • Be a BES member.
  • Have at least a B.Sc. or equivalent degree.
  • Be a PhD student, postgraduate research assistant (within 3 years of completing relevant degree) or equivalent (Postdoc researchers are therefore not eligible to apply).
  • Work or study at a university or research institution (including field centres, NGOs, museums, etc.) that provide research facilities.
  • Work in scientific areas within our remit (the science of ecology) and of relevance to the training course or meeting they are applying to attend.
  • Give a presentation if attending a meeting.
  • No retrospective claims for funding will be considered.

  • No applicant may receive more than two Training & Travel Grants in any five year period. There must be at least three years between grants.

    There is no application deadline; instead, there are two opening dates within a 12 month period (January and July).

    Once funding for one round has been allocated, the round will close until the next opening date.

    If the meeting you wish to attend is between January and the end of June, you must apply to the first round. If the meeting is after June, you should apply to the second round. (Please note that awards may take up to 2 weeks to be processed, therefore events taking place in the first three weeks of July are eligible for the first round).

    Our website will be updated when the funding for each round has been allocated.

    Annual Meeting

    Deadline

    Travel Grants to our Annual Meeting 2019 will open towards the end of the year.

    We are pleased to be able to support a limited number of students/postgraduate research assistant who are a citizen of/ and working in a ‘low-income economy’ or ‘lower-middle-income economy’ country according to the World Bank categorization to attend our Annual Meeting each December.

    These will be awarded on a first come first serve basis.

    If you wish to apply for a Travel Grant to attend our Annual Meeting, please note the same conditions apply as the standard Training & Travel Grants (please see above). In summary you need to:

  • Have a talk or poster presentation accepted at the meeting
