About the Research Grants

The Research Sub-Committee (RSC) awards grants twice a year to the value of up to £1,250. Awards are intended to assist with primatological research in any area, except for those covered by the Captive Care and Conservation Grants.  

Although the financial value of the grants is small (typically not exceeding £1,250) it should be remembered that support from the PSGB is invaluable when applying for money from other sources. Candidates should not apply to more than one sub-committee for funds for the same project or in any one year, but decide which best represents their chosen research topic. For further clarification please see the Guidance Notes below and if unsure contact the relevant Convenor for advice prior to submitting a proposal. Grants are awarded based on the quality of the primatological research proposed, although maximising benefit to the individual or institution is also a consideration.

Applying for funds

PSGB Grants are open to PSGB members and to primate range state nationals who are not members. Range state nationals who are successful with a grant application will be given free PSGB membership for the duration of their grant.

We have introduced two funding rounds to all our grants as of 2023. The 2024 deadlines are March 1st and November 1st. The next deadline is 1st March 2024.

All applications should be written in English and emailed direct to the convenor ([email protected]).  The application form can be downloaded below.

References should be written on the form that can be downloaded below, and submitted by email direct to the convenor ([email protected]).  Your institution should also provide a statement confirming that it is willing to host the research. This statement should also be emailed direct to the Convenor.
