The Primate Society of Great Britain awards small grants in support of primate research, with areas outside of captive care and conservation being prioritised by the Research Working Party. For support of research relating to captive care or conservation, please apply to the Captive Care and Conservation Working Parties, respectively. Research Grants are administered by the PSGB’s Research Working Party, which considers applications at its annual meeting. 

Research Grant Submission

We generally award two General Research Grants in the annual award round, each to the value of about £1000. Awards are intended to assist with primatological research in any area, except for those covered by the Captive Care and Conservation Grants.  

Grants are awarded based on the quality of the primatological research proposed, although maximising benefit to the individual or institution is also a consideration.

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


  • Proposals are invited for grants to assist:
    • Research of benefit to furthering understanding in any area of primatology, excluding captive care and conservation
  • Grants will only be awarded to members of PSGB. 
  • Only those projects judged to have specific attainable goals that will further understanding within primatology will be considered. 
  • Whilst the applicant may also apply for a Conservation or Captive Care grant they may not do so in any one year or for the same project unless it may be clearly partitioned into general research goals and conservation or captive care goals.

You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member. Grants will only be awarded to members of PSGB.


  • Although it is recognised that humans are primates, projects focused purely on humans will not be funded as grants are available elsewhere for this work. 
    •  Research of a comparative nature involving human subjects is eligible.
  • Work that has already started is rarely funded by the RWP although specific parts of an ongoing project requiring funds (e.g., laboratory / analysis / training / dissemination costs) may be.
