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 British Science Association Media Fellowship provides a unique opportunity for practising scientists, clinicians and engineers to spend two to six weeks working at the heart of a media outlet such as the Guardian, BBC Breakfast or The Londonist. Selected Fellows will be mentored by professional journalists with the aim to give them, and their colleagues via dissemination post-placement; the confidence and willingness to engage with the media; tackle issues of mistrust and misrepresentation and to give journalists access to new scientific expertise.
Grant
Conference Grants are available to those Society members who can least afford to attend scientific meetings and conferences around the world. Conference Grants are reserved for any members of the Society who are undergraduates doing their first degree, MSc students or PhD students or those in the very 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.
