Nutrition Committee Travel Awards

Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are not accepting applications for the Travel Awards in 2021.

Awards of up £10,000 each are available to assist early- and mid-career scientists to learn new techniques and/or to make and establish contacts with international counterparts by spending time in an institution outside the UK. The awards are available in the broad areas of human nutrition and crop science to members of academic and research staff at UK universities and other organisations who are defined as eligible for funding under the criteria used by research councils. Up to four awards will be available every year. The scheme is not open to PhD students. 

No contribution will be made to the applicant’s salary nor will a bench fee to the host institution be paid except in exceptional circumstances.

Applications can be submitted at any time to The Rank Prize Funds using the form available below. The Committee will review the applications in January, May and September of each year and determine which applications it wishes to support.
