Chemists' Community Fund

The Chemists' Community Fund (working name of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Benevolent Fund) assists with regular grants and one-off grants for members of the Royal Society of Chemistry and their dependents who are in need.

The Fund is currently able to award grants to any chemist in the UK and Republic of Ireland if they have been financially impacted by the COVD-19 pandemic, even if they do not hold Royal Society of Chemistry membership. Email hardshipgrants@rsc.org

Applicants normally must have been members for the last three years, or ex-members who were in the society must have been members for at least 10 years.

The fund can also assist its Student Members, regardless of their membership length, if they are facing exceptional or unexpected circumstances.

Our grants have been awarded to help towards essential living costs, home maintenance, respite care and household appliances.
