The Royal Society of Chemistry invites applications for its outreach fund – small grants. These provide financial support to members, individuals and organisations in order to enable them to run chemistry-based public and schools engagement activities. The trust aims to support projects that:
- maximise members’ outreach and engagement contribution;
- offer teachers a range of effective curriculum-enriching activities and opportunities to further engage their students with outreach;
- provide hard-to-reach student audiences with inspiring chemistry engagement opportunities, delivered or coordinated by skilled people;
- increase chemistry and chemists’ influence in public discourse and decision-making.
Applicants may include society members, member-led groups, researchers in academia or industry, museums, community groups, non-profit organisations, arts groups and libraries. Activities must take place within the UK or Republic of Ireland and should seek to engage with members of the society and member groups.
Small grants are worth up to £2,000 and the deadline is 12 noon on Monday 15 January 2018.
