Final year project bursaries

The Society recognises the need to support training in the in vivo sciences and provides funding for final year undergraduates who are undertaking an in vivo research project. Funding covers training for the student and the cost of a personal Home Office Licence.

Funding is allocated to students through their supervisor, who will need to be an Ordinary Member of The Society, and applications are now being accepted for research projects taking place in the 2014/15 academic year. Applications should be completed online.

The small print

Applications for this bursary scheme should be made by the project supervisor, who must be an Ordinary Member of The Society. The Member's institution should also have a Society Representative.

The research proposal should be physiological in nature, utilise skills regulated by a Home Office personal licence and clearly outline the in vivo skills needed to address the scientific problem. 

Successful applicants who receive bursaries will be asked to provide the following:

  1. A report from the supervisor summarising the in vivo skills developed by the student (max 500 words)
  2. A report from the student summarising their experience in terms of the project and skills gained (max 500 words)
  3. A copy of the student’s personal Home Office Licence
