The British Society of Soil Science has a long history of supporting its student members to attend its conferences and workshops. In order to ensure that the Society continues to meet its strategic aims of "Enhancing soil education and developing soil scientists" and "Promoting the understanding, relevance and use of soil science and the dissemination of research findings" we have created this grant to help students cover some of the costs of attending relevant conferences and workshops that they may not otherwise have been able to afford. 

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