Chemistry Grants Available!

 

The Royal Society of Chemistry currently has funding open to support public and schools engagement events and activities. The outreach fund has two pots of money:

  • Small grants (from £500 to £2,000)
  • Large grants (from £2,000 to £10,000)

Deadline is noon on Monday 13th January.

School Activities

The grant scheme is open to both members and non-members in the UK and ROI to support school activities that aim to:

  • enrich student’s chemistry education and not solely deliver the curriculum – providing students with opportunities to explore chemistry through local contexts

AND/OR

  • demonstrate career opportunities and develop employability skills

AND/OR

  • provide opportunities which would not normally be accessible to the students taking part, e.g for hard-to-reach student audiences.

So you could apply for a grant to bring in one of the South West’s brilliant local science communicators, like Matthew Tosh, Hands on Science or Explorer Dome – see the full local listing here.

 

Public engagement activities

Grants will be awarded to public engagement activities that:

  • increase chemists’ visibility as approachable people

AND/OR

  • increase the publics’ confidence in discussing chemistry

AND/OR

  • demonstrate the relevance of chemistry to everyday interests and concerns
