A favourite funder of budding biosocial researchers asks that applicants don’t overdo it

The Parkes Foundation is a charity that all early career researchers working in or around biosocial science should be familiar with.

The foundation runs two main grant streams which open to applications once a year. Its Small Grants Fund is aimed primarily at master’s and PhD students—it will consider applications from others, but not undergraduates—to help with research projects in the areas of reproduction, demography, fertility, human health in a biosocial context, conservation and human genetics. Grants are worth up to £1,000 and a handful are usually awarded each year.
