The British Ecological Society 2022 Grants for African Ecologists (up to £8,000)

Applications are currently ongoing for the 2022 British Ecological Society (BES) grants for African Ecologists.

This funding assists African ecologists in doing cutting-edge ecological research. They recognize that ecologists in Africa confront particular hurdles when conducting research; this award is aimed to help users grow their skills, expertise, and knowledge base while also allowing them to network with ecologists around the world. The British Ecological Society funds services and equipment in Africa to enable great ecological science.


  • For research, the British Ecological Society Grants might be worth up to £8,000. An additional payment of up to £2,000 may be sought to help pay fund travel to meet other ecologists outside their typical peer group.
  • Successful applicants also receive two years of free BES membership and free online access to our journals.
