An important way in which the Society supports excellence in meteorology and contributes to the advancement of the science is via its grant schemes.

The Legacies Fund is made up of small monetary grants made to members (usually younger scientists) to help finance expeditions, carry out research or attend meteorological conferences, for which adequate funds are not otherwise available.
This is granted to outstanding young scientists from any part of the world to enable them to undertake research work or study in meteorology or associated physical oceanography (air-sea interaction) at a centre of excellence outside their own countries.
The Carers’ Fund provides small monetary grants to help you attend meteorologically-related events or conferences that you may not otherwise be able attend because you care for someone else.
