Science and Society Community Challenge Grant Scheme

This new grant scheme offers financial support to individuals and organisations to create and run pilot projects which take science to diverse audiences, and engage them with science in their own communities.

The scheme aims to:

  • reach audiences of all ages and from all walks of life that are currently under-served by existing activities and inform, inspire and involve them in science
  • investigate and test new methods of engagement and participation.

Three levels of project funding are available: up to £10,000, up to £20,000 and up to £40,000, depending on the size and difficulty of the project.
