Grants for SciComm Summer School (Malta)

Registration to the third international STEAM Summer School in Science Communication is now open! The summer school is a 10-day intensive course in July which covers a wide-range of science communication topics, including journalism, social media, policy, management, arts, and performance. What makes it unique is the combination of the arts with STEM subjects for creative communication approaches. The course will be comprehensive and no previous experience is required.

This year the school will be hosted at the University of Malta and will be a fantastic opportunity to hear from international experts and mix with science communication enthusiasts from around the world. Participants will be able to explore ways to engage various public groups with research and will have a chance to improve writing, speaking and other transferable skills for career development. Through the course, students will also organise and enjoy our social events which include science theatre, stand-up comedy and film. Watch our promo video to see more.

There are three grant options available to attend the school which will cover registration fees, accommodation and funds towards travel. These include our institutional grant, an international grant and those who apply through ERASMUS+ Mobility. More information about how to apply for each of these grants can be found on our website. It is also possible to attend via paid registration and an early-bird discount is currently applied. We hope to see you there!
