How the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour sniffs out the best bids
- Asab’s Research Grants scheme requires you to have been a member for a year, but not all grants have such restrictions.
- You can assume slightly more background knowledge than with a general funder, but no more tolerance for unnecessary jargon.
- Only provide sufficient references to support your bid—don’t try to show off your knowledge.
- The main section of the application is blank—think carefully about how to structure it.
The Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour is an academic society that funds research and educational outreach, as well as organising conferences, in a field that can often slip through the cracks between biology and social science funders.
