British Ecological Society (BES): Inviting applications for ‘Research Grants’ to support scientific ecological research where there are limited alternative sources of funding.

Funding brief: These grants support scientific ecological research where there are limited alternative sources of funding.

They support projects where there is a clear ecological science focus to the work; any other aspects, i.e. sociology, economics, etc., must be clearly integrated into the ecology and scientific goals of the project. The grants are to support work of the highest international standard and applicants need to show how the work will advance ecological science.

Research grants are to provide funding:
● For new and innovative ecological research
● For pump priming projects
● To help early career ecologists to establish an independent research career in ecology

Criteria:
● Excellence of the ecological research being proposed
● How the project develops the hypothesis and provides evidence for the next stage of the research
● Feasibility of the proposal
● Promise and productivity of the applicant, and ability to work independently
● Value for money and justification of the resources requested
● Where an application is associated with an existing funded project, the relationship of the proposal to that existing project needs to be made explicit in the proposal. The research should be distinct from timetabled teaching activities and should primarily have been planned and organized by the applicant.

They understand that there may be additional contributors to the project, but our contribution must make up the majority of the project funding, or form a recognizable and distinct component which would otherwise not take place.
 Funding is not available for work that will form part of a degree/masters/thesis/fellowship. Those with research fellowships that cover their salary only, can only apply for funds to cover research that is additional to, and independent of, any already funded research programme.
 Applications to take part in an expedition will not be considered (e.g. Operation Wallacea). They shall, though, consider applications for a stand-alone research project which take place during an expedition.
 Applicants are responsible for obtaining all relevant permits and permissions required to undertake the proposed work.
 Applications for projects based outside the UK should demonstrate appropriate liaison with collaborating organizations, local environmental agencies, NGOs and/or communities.
 This grant will not fund attendance to a conference.
 This grant will not fund publication costs.
 They will not award more than one grant to any one applicant in any one year, and no more than three grants in any five year period.
 Failure to submit a satisfactory report at the end of a grant will mean the grantee is ineligible to apply for further grants.

Grants over £5,000 up to a limit of £20,000:
 These grants are given to individuals, not organizations.
 Only current BES members may apply.
 From January 2018, all applicants who apply for a Large Research Grant will be required to have been a member of the BES for at least one year leading up to the application. In 2019 membership will be required from at least January 2018. From 2020 onwards, this will be increased to two years.
 Grants are limited to ecologists at an early stage in their career. ‘Early career’ is defined as less than 5 years full time equivalent research position post- Ph.D. or -D.Phil. experience according to the date of your graduation certificate.
 It is the responsibility of the applicant to make their eligibility clear on the application form, with any relevant employment details and career breaks clearly outlined. This should be added to the ‘Additional Information’ at the end of the CV section of your application form.
 The investigator must have a Ph.D. or D.Phil., or have submitted a thesis that will have been examined by the time the application is submitted.
 The investigator must demonstrate that the project is distinct from other current research activities, or if there is any overlap, that it would substantially extend their existing research into new and distinct areas.
 The investigator should undertake at least part of the research him/herself.
 Funding is not given to individuals who already have full time permanent academic positions in universities or equivalent positions in research institutes.
 Those who have received an early career grant are ineligible from applying again.
 Applicants cannot use a Research Grant to fund a component of a larger study – they understand that there may be additional contributors to the project, however our contribution must make up the majority of the project funding, or form a recognizable and distinct component which would otherwise not take place.
 Applicants are responsible for obtaining all relevant permits and permissions required to undertake the proposed work.
 Applications for projects based outside the UK should demonstrate liaison with collaborating organizations, local environmental agencies, NGOs and/or communities.
