Grants

The Nutrition Society has a range of Grants available to members, and a number of other grants we promote on behalf of organisations we work closely with.

Grant
The Nutrition Society is sponsoring travel to the 21st International Congress of Nutrition (IUNS-ICN) in Buenos Aires, Argentina, 15 - 20 October 2017.  A limited number of travel grants are available for early career scientists (within 10 years of graduation). The maximum grant awarded will be £1500. Find out more about the IUNS-ICN International Congress of Nutrition.
Grant
Travel Grants are available to Society members who can least afford to travel to scientific meetings and conferences around the world. Travel Grants are reserved for any members of the Society who are undergraduates doing their first degree, MSc or PhD students or those in the early stages of their careers i.e. within 10 years of higher degree graduation.  Part of our remit is to support nutritionists and nutrition scientists to share their ideas and research, present their work to new audiences and make new connections with their peers around the world.
Grant
Applications are invited for a Rank Prize Nutrition Fund New Lecturer Award in the area of human nutrition or crop science.  This grant is available to newly-appointed lecturers, researchers of equivalent status in research institutes, or fellows with their own independent support, working in a UK institution.  The post must have been started no earlier than calendar year 2015 but allowance will be made for career breaks. The maximum grant will be £20,000 which can be used to fund any aspect of research that will further the applicant’s career.
Grant
The Nutrition Society is offering a limited number of summer studentships aimed at undergraduates interested in a career in nutritional science. The studentships will provide undergraduates, registered on Nutrition or related degree programmes, with the opportunity to undertake a period of research in a university, research institute or industrial setting.  All applicants will be expected to have an academic supervisor based at the university at which they are registered. It is anticipated that students will have already undertaken at least two years of study at university and have at least one year of their course remaining. Studentships are available for up to eight weeks and carry a stipend of £250 per week. The applicant’s university will receive a further £500 towards research expenses associated with the project.
Grant
Applications from supervisors are invited for a Rank Prize Nutrition Fund Post-Graduate Studentship in Human Nutrition, to start in October 2018. This should be at a UK institution.  The maximum grant will be £10,000 pa for four years which can be used to fund partially a studentship with support from a Research Council, Charity or other source. Additional funds of up to £1,000 are available annually for the student to attend UK and/or overseas professional conferences.
