Parkes Foundation Grants in 2010:

Small Grant Fund

The Parkes Foundation has for a number of years provided limited funding through its Small Grant Fund to help Masters and PhD students conduct research into the biosocial sciences.  The Fund aims to promote the study of biological and social topics with the emphasis on human biosocial projects.

In 2010, the Foundation will support studies falling in the areas of reproduction, demography, fertility, human health (including HIV/AIDS), conservation and human genetics.  Studies outside these areas, for example, animal (including primates) projects and evolution will not be supported.

Grants are directed particularly towards helping graduate research students meet their field work costs, but others may apply. Undergraduate projects, however, are not supported.  Grants are small, usually not exceeding £600.

 
PhD Grant Fund

One grant of up to £3000 is offered to enable a registered PhD student to undertake substantive field work as part of their higher degree in the subject areas of reproduction or demography or fertility.

 
General information

Applications may be submitted to either the Small Grant Fund or the PhD Grant Fund but not to both. There are separate application forms for the two funds.

The form on which applications must be submitted can be downloaded from here; [Small Grant Fund in 2010] and [PhD Grant Fund in 2010].

The form should be sent to secretary@parkesfoundation.org.uk.  Only email applications submitted in the correct format will be accepted for consideration.

The opening date for receipt of applications is 13 November 2009 and the closing date is 8 January 2010.  The secretary will acknowledge all applications received and will then contact applicants’ referees; if no acknowledgement is received within a week of submission, applicants should contact the secretary.  Applications will be considered by the Trustees and awards will be made in March/April 2010.
