Funding: Apply for a British Science Week Grant
Applications for British Science Week 2019 are now open!
There are three grant schemes available to support British Science Week (8-17 March 2019) activities: one for schools, one for community groups, and one for British Science Association branches.
The deadline for applications is 5pm, 12 November 2018.
This scheme offers grants for schools in challenging circumstances to organise their own events as part of British Science Week.
There are three options available:
Kick Start grant: A grant of £300 for your school to run an activity
Kick Start More grant: A grant of £700 for your school to host a science event or activity which involves your students and the local community
Kick Start Youth grant: A grant of £150 for your school to run an activity during British Science Week organised by students.
This scheme offers £500 to £1000 grants for community groups that work directly with audiences who are traditionally under-represented and currently not engaged in science activity.
BSA definition of groups that are underrepresented in science includes:
- people who are Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME)
- people with low socio economic status (SES), including people disadvantaged in terms of education and income
- young people facing adversity, including those not in education, employment or training (NEET)#
- people with a disability, defined as a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term effect on someone’s ability to do normal daily activities (Equalities Act 2010)
- people living in a remote and rural location, defined as settlements of less than 10,000 people
- girls and women
This scheme offers up to £500 of funding for British Science Association branches to take part in the BSW national celebration by running local events during British Science Week.
This scheme is open to BSA volunteer branches only.
