The British Ecological Society (BES) makes grants to PhD students and postgraduate research assistants to meet the costs of specialist field training courses and to network and publicize their research at workshops and conferences. Applicants must be members of BES. However, there are no restrictions on nationality or residence of applicants. Grants of up to £1 thousand are available. There is no application deadline; instead, there are two opening dates with the next round of funding opening on 13 July 2020. Grants are awarded on a first come first serve basis.
