The British Ecological Society has announced that its Outreach Grants programme will re-open for applications in July 2016.
Through the programme, individuals and organisations such as schools, museums, libraries and community groups can apply for grants to promote ecological science to a wide audience. The funding is available for projects that increase public understanding of, and engagement with ecology. Applications from museums and schools are welcome but projects must involve significant outreach beyond schools. Projects aimed solely at delivering curriculum to school children will not be considered. The maximum award is £2,000. However, the award may be used as part-funding for larger projects involving other sponsors.
