Society for Endocrinology - a world-leading authority on hormones

As part of the Society for Endocrinology’s 2023 strategic review, we have adapted our grants portfolio to ensure that we are effectively meeting the funding needs of our members post-pandemic, supporting members at all career stages, and operating a transparent application and award process.

Our new grants portfolio is made up of five grant types:

  1. Research: to support members’ research and audit activities.
  2. Meeting: to support members to organise meetings and events.
  3. Travel: to support members’ travel to conferences and meetings
  4. Teaching: to support teaching in endocrinology at all stages, supporting initiatives for both students and teachers
  5. Outreach: funding for members and patient support groups for outreach activities aimed at patients or the public.

In addition to these five core grants, the Society will be administering grants on behalf of the Clinical Endocrinology Journal Foundation (CEJF) and specific details are provided in the Guidance for Applicants document.

Barriers to application have been removed and ALL members will be eligible to apply for ALL grants*.

For core Society grants there will be 3 deadlines a year and applications for all 5 grants types will be accepted at each deadline. The CEJF Research Grant will have one deadline each year. Grants will not be awarded retrospectively. Applicants will be informed of results approximately 7 weeks after the application deadline.

The next, and final deadline of 2024 is 11:59 (BST) on Wednesday 2 October 2024 (This is the deadline to use for applications for travel for SfE BES 2025, Harrogate, March 2025)

Application forms should be submitted as a Word document to [email protected] by the appropriate deadline.

A new dedicated Grants Panel will mark applications and award grants based on merit, within the financial parameters set by the Society’s Council of Trustees.

Our new Guidance for Applicants provides a comprehensive overview of this flexible new grant portfolio and advice on which grant is most appropriate for you.

The Society particularly welcomes innovative, collaborative and matched funding proposals. If you would like to discuss your ideas or have any questions, prior to application, please email [email protected]

The Society is a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities and follows their guidelines for management of our research grant portfolio.

*Student Members should not be the primary applicant, but are welcome to be a named co-applicant. Society for Endocrinology affiliated Patient Support Groups are welcome to apply for the Outreach grant, either alone, jointly with another affiliated Patient Support Group or in collaboration with Society members.
