British Poultry Science Ltd was established in 1960 with the primary objective of publishing the journal British Poultry Science, which has become a leading international journal for poultry scientists and advisers to the poultry industry throughout the world.
In addition, British Poultry Science Ltd is a registered charity and as such supports early-career poultry scientists by providing travel grants to conferences and, from 2015, Small Project Grants for poultry research. See links from the above menu for details of application process for these awards. Support is not necessarily restricted to these grants, anything promoting Poultry Science might be considered so long as it is not going to commercially reward the applicant. If in doubt ask!
