The purpose of this fund is to provide free membership to those experiencing periods of financial hardship so they can continue to access the career development resources and research network provided by the SEB.
SEB student and early career scientist members can apply for up to £500 to support their travel to conferences, career workshops, research trips, and laboratory visits. This funding has now been extended to include registration fees for online events.
SEB members can apply for up to £1000 to help with the cost of organising a scientific event independently or in collaboration with another organisation. We assess applications twice a year, the deadlines for applying are the 1 March and the 1 November.
A maximum of £1000 is available to SEB members and £200 non-members to cover the costs associated with holding or participating in an outreach event that promotes experimental biology to a wide range of audiences.
