The Genetics Society is one of the oldest learned societies devoted to Genetics in the world. Its membership of over 1700 consists of most of the UK's active geneticists, including academics, researchers and students. It is a registered charity, and organizes meetings to promulgate genetics, supports students to attend meetings, sponsors research through fieldwork grants and student bursaries, and promotes the Public Understanding of Genetics. Its grant program supports attendance by junior scientists at conferences on research in Genetics. 

The Genetics Society Conference Grants (Scheme B) is for attendance at non-GS meetings. Grants of up to £750 are available to attend conferences in the area of Genetics that are not Genetics Society or our Sectional Interest meetings. 

Up to three Conference grants per year will be co-sponsored by the Galton Society and will provide up to £1000.  Applicants requesting consideration for a Galton co-sponsored award should explain why their work is relevant to human genetics.
