Early Career Scientist Grants available now - it's easy and quick to apply!

Every month we will carry out a draw and award a grant of $500 to an early career life scientist to support them with their scientific career. The grant can be used for anything that will help your scientific career - examples could be:

  • Fees associated with publishing in open access journals (eg. Article Processing Charges).
  • Virtual conference registration fees
  • Travel expenses to a conference
  • Career support sessions with Chaperone
  • Or anything else to help support your research & career!

In addition, grant winners will also receive a 5% discount voucher for three career development sessions with Chaperone. 

There are no complicated rules or terms and conditions – there are just a few requirements:

  • you need to be a current life science post-graduate or post-doctoral researcher, and you must have received your highest degree (BSc, MSc or PhD) within the past 10 years
  • you must provide a description of what the money will be used for 
  • and after you have submitted your application, we will need a short statement from your supervisor / PI to confirm your application.

Assuming that the above requirements are met, your application will be entered into a draw and the winner will be selected at random. We will post the winner's details on our blog here

If you need more information, please see our Early Career Scientist Grant FAQs
