NOTE: There is no deadline for applications but the proposed projects must start at least six weeks after submission of the application.

The purpose of this grant is to provide funding for Society Members to produce resources that can be used in education and training in applied microbiology. In addition, the resources may also be used to promote microbiology with the general public.

Resources promoting microbiology that may be considered for support could consist of the following:

  • personnel time and materials in the design,
  • production and delivery of items such as software, books, videos, pamphlets and other items used in education.

Although the award will usually be just for a 12-month period, in exceptional cases, if the proposed project is suitable and further support is required after the first year, this may be considered and the applicant must submit justification for further funding support.

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


  • The project must clearly demonstrate how it will effectively engage and educate future microbiologists.
  • Applicants should have been a Full or Student Member of the Society for one calendar year and paid two subscription payments prior to submitting an application.
  • Applicants may only apply for this grant once in any two year period.

You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member. This grant is only available to Members of the Society who have at least two full years of membership.
