Application deadline: APPLY for a travel grant by 30 April 2017.   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
These awards are available to assist early- and mid-career scientists to make and establish contacts with international counterparts by spending time in an institution outside the UK. The awards are available for work in the broad areas of human nutrition or crop science.
Award
The Nutrition Society Silver Medal has been assigned annually since 1991 for scientific excellence in the field of nutrition.
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.
