Established in 1913, the vision of the British Ecological Society (BES) is for a world inspired, informed and influenced by ecology. With a mission to generate, communicate and promote ecological knowledge and solutions, they have various strategic goals: (1) communicate world-leading ecological science; (2) generate, synthesise and exchange ecological knowledge; (3) share the excitement and relevance of ecology; (4) inspire, engage and recognise talent; and (5) build a sustainable, resilient and efficient society.
They support projects where there is a clear ecological science focus to the work; any other aspects, i.e. sociology, economics, etc., must be clearly integrated into the ecology and scientific goals of the project. The grants are to support work of the highest international standard and applicants need to show how the work will advance ecological science. Research grants are to provide funding: (1) for new and innovative ecological research; (2) for pump priming projects; and (3) to help early career ecologists to establish an independent research career in ecology.
Awards are open to individuals and not for organisations. The investigator must have a Ph.D. or D.Phil., or have submitted a thesis that will have been examined by the time the application is submitted.
Actions can take place in various countries worldwide.
Small projects can be awarded up to £5,000 and early career ecologists can apply for funding up to £20,000. All projects should start within 6 months of the grant award date. Small Research Grants should run for a maximum of 12 months and Large Research may run for a maximum of 24 months.
Applicants need to use the online grants system. The next deadline will be on 30 August 2023.
