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 deadline for applications is now closed.  About Daphne Jackson Fellowship The Daphne Jackson Trust is dedicated to returning scientists, engineers, technologists and mathematicians to their careers following a break taken for family, caring or health reasons. Daphne Jackson Fellowships are unique - they offer Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) professionals wishing to return to a research career after a break of two or more years, the opportunity to balance an individually tailored retraining programme with a challenging research project in a suitably supportive environment. This Fellowship is part-time over two years and consists of a challenging research project and at least 100 hours retraining per year. The unparalleled support offered by the Trust's Fellowship Advisors and administrative staff, coupled with mentoring and retraining provided during the Fellowship, give returners the confidence and skills they need to successfully return to research.  
Grant
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.

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. Studentships are available for up to eight weeks and carry a stipend of £250 per week. The applicant’s university will receive a further £500 towards research expenses associated with the project.

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.
