Activity Fund

If you are planning to organise events for Biomedical Science Day, consider applying for the Biomedical Science Day Activity Fund. The fund will provide grants of up to £500 for IBMS members to develop their biomedical science related activities and events.

Activities should aim to raise public awareness of biomedical science and demonstrate the value of the profession and its role in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infections and disease.

The grants may be used to support a range of activities and resources for experiments, exhibition space at careers events, marketing and communications materials, incentives and giveaways.

We recognise that not all members are able to participate on the day and therefore grants may be used for activities up to 30th September 2024.

Please complete our online application form by Monday 20th May.



Please note: by providing the IBMS with the information requested you are consenting to its use as indicated in the IBMS Privacy Notice.

Further information can be found on the IBMS Privacy Notices webpage

After the deadline

Submissions will be reviewed and the successful applicants will be notified by email.

Successful applicants must show that their activity:

  • Is realistic, planned and has a well-thought-out budget
  • Applies a creative and innovative approach
  • Raises awareness of biomedical science to a wider audience

Funds of up to £500 per applicant will be transferred to the successful members who will have to provide receipts of all purchases. 

If successful, applicants will be required to provide pictures of their event and write up their activities afterwards to demonstrate how the funds were used, which will be used for promotional purposes.
