Nutrition grants

Nurturing nutrition

We know that advances in human and animal nutrition and crop husbandry take many years to prove their worth. So our nutrition grants support scientists at different stages in their careers: as they gain experience, develop their research interests or collaborate as a community.

A grant of up to £1,500 for PhD students whose research has been disrupted by COVID-19.

Part-funding to set up and support a PhD studentship.

A £5,000 hardship grant to final-year PhD students in nutrition whose studies have been disrupted.

Sponsorship for scientists to give keynote presentations at prestigious meetings.

Financial support to encourage established scientists to explore a topic of special interest.

Up to £10,000 for early- and mid-career scientists to spend time in an institution outside the UK.

Summer vacation living costs so final-year undergrads can get research lab experience.

Financial support to help newly appointed lecturers, researchers or fellows establish their work.
