Small Grants

The funds can be used in a variety of ways, for example:

  • to travel to meetings if presenting a poster or paper;
  • with fieldwork or research projects;
  • to buy books or scientific equipment;
  • to hire meeting rooms or attend forays; or
  • to support the cost of preparing applications to the Heritage Lottery Fund for mycological projects.

Support for attendance at meetings will be considered only if:

  • the applicant is presenting a paper or poster, or
  • the application is submitted normally at least four months prior to the meeting. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Members can apply either as individuals or as a group (for example an affiliated local group).
  • Normally only one person from any one research group will be supported to attend the same meeting.

You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member. Applicants for BMS financial Grants must have been an active BMS member for a minimum of 6 months prior to applying for any of the Grants/Bursaries/Funds offered.


  • Special consideration will be given where other supporting funds have actively been sought, with evidence of this provided. 


  • They should not be used to support travel and/or accommodation at BMS-organised scientific meetings.
  • Awards will not be made to supplement existing undergraduate awards or replace institutional funding for undergraduate or postgraduate research.
  • Retrospective awards will not be made.
