The Society of Biology organises an undergraduate research bursaries programme in conjunction with the British Ecological Society, British Pharmacological Society, Genetics Society, Society for Endocrinology, Society for Reproduction and Fertility, The Physiological Society with the support of the Nuffield Foundation. The awards provide support for students for six to eight weeks. Students must be registered at a UK institution for the majority of their undergraduate science degree and should be in the middle years of their first degree.
Applications on behalf of first- or final-year undergraduates, or graduates, will not be considered. Medical students, and medical students studying for intercalated science degrees, are not eligible for these awards. Preference will be given to students who are expected to achieve a first or upper second class degree, who are considering a career in research, but who have not yet had an opportunity to experience research.
