Annals of Botany Company

Grants and donations

Whenever the returns on its endowments permit, the Company makes small grants and donations (generally between £500 and £5000) to botanical scientists and organisations with a view to forwarding botanical science, assisting in relevant research, or allowing suitable individuals to attend relevant conferences, particularly where they subsequently present a paper to one of our journals or otherwise promote the Company’s objectives as a result of their attendance.

Applications for an Annals of Botany Company Grant are welcome although, in the present financial climate, funds are severely limited. Applications should be concise: please write a sentence or two in response to each of the following questions, the third of which is particularly important. At the conclusion of any project which receives our funding, an article for BotanyOne is also expected.

  • Who are you and what are your contact details?
  • For what activity or event is the funding required?
  • Why should it be the Company that supports your application?
  • How much is being requested, and where and how will the funding be spent?
  • By what method, and when, are you requesting funding to be supplied?
  • What evidence of legitimate expenditure will you ultimately be able to provide?

Send the completed application by post to the Company’s Registered Office at  The Innovation Centre, University of Exeter, Rennes Drive, Exeter EX4 4RN, UK or by e-mail to the Company Secretary and Treasurer.
