The BES makes Research Grants in support of scientific ecological research where there are limited alternative sources of funding. Small projects can be awarded up to £5 thousand, and early-career ecologists can apply for funding up to £20 thousand.
Applicants must be members of BES. However, there are no restrictions on nationality or residence of applicants, or where they carry out their research. Additionally, BES offers Outreach Grants of up to £2 thousand to encourage its members and others to promote ecological science to a wide audience.
