Eligible Organisations

Grants are available to both individuals and organisations, including (but not limited to) schools, libraries, community groups, society members and researchers.

Suitable Projects

The purpose of the project should be to reach a wider audience and go beyond that of the academic curriculum. The British Ecological Society want to see a project that:

  • Increases public engagement with ecology
  • Helps to develop a better understanding of the science
  • Stimulates discussion and inspires people of all ages to learn about and take interest in ecology
  • Develops communication skills in ecology
  • Demonstrates direct evidence of interaction with audiences

They do not fund:

  • Staff salaries
  • The purchase of equipment, unless it makes up a vital part of the application
  • Projects aimed solely at delivering curriculum to school children

Application Process

You can register online and follow the online process.

Important Dates

The deadline for this grant is 7th September 2020 at 5pm.

Funding Range

The maximum award is £2000. This may cover the whole or part cost of the project. Larger projects, which are funded by other sponsors, can also be funded.
