Research Grants of up to £7500 support (i) promising pilot research projects that are at too early a stage to attract funding from larger funding agencies such as the UK Research Councils, and (ii) small-scale projects, that, although worthwhile, are unlikely to attract funding from alternative sources. Grants may be made to allow the applicant to travel to conduct collaborative research, or to bring a collaborator to the applicant's institution for the same purpose.
Applicants must be members of ASAB. Please note that membership must be held for a minimum of 1 year prior to applying for funds (if in doubt, details of membership can be obtained from the Membership Secretary). The fund is open to all applicants who have a PhD, regardless of age and experience, although in the event of competition for funds preference may be given to applicants early in their career and first-time applicants. Retrospective applications will not be considered. Grants will not be awarded to postgraduate students in order to fund work to be submitted for their degree.
