Regional Grant Scheme

The grants allow individual members of the RSB, around the world, to apply directly for funding to help run an event or activity in their region.


The grant scheme is currently open for applications for funding to run events and activities starting on 1st February 2019. The deadline to apply for a grant is 15th December 2018.

If you have an idea for an outreach event or activity and are looking for some additional funds to help make it a success, you can apply for up to £500 towards event costs. We look to fund a wide range of public engagement and outreach events and activities. We are keen to support people who are experienced in event delivery, people hoping to organise their first event, and everyone in between. If you would like to advertise this opportunity to people you know please download our 2019 grants poster.
