LEAVE A NEST GRANT
The Leave a Nest Grant aims to support passionate early career scientists or researchers to pursue their curiosity (favourite experiments) .
Since 2001, Leave a Nest in Japan has provided various opportunities for researchers in Japan and around the world to be able to pursue their goal towards “Advancing Science and Technology For Global Happiness”. The Leave a Nest Grant is one such outreach activity.
In general, young researchers have difficulties in obtaining grants to support research activities that they would really like to pursue. Leave a Nest being a Science communication company made primarily of Masters and PhD researchers, quickly understood this problem and strongly felt the need to solve it.
Since 2008, the Leave a Nest Grant has supported close to 200 young researchers, mainly in Japan & the UK. Now Leave a Nest would like to expand the Grant and related activities beyond Japan, to support the research activity of young researchers around the world. As our corporate name suggests, Leave a Nest, stands for leaving the comfort of one’s nest and taking the first step into the unknown. We hope many young researchers will be able to use this opportunity and take their own first small step to pursue and excel in their research careers.
