The Royal College of Pathologists has announced that applications are now being accepted for the Public Engagement Innovation Grant Scheme 2017.
Under this scheme grants of up to £1,000 are available for individuals or organisations who wish to run a project that engages audiences such as school students, undergraduates, health professionals or local communities with pathology. All proposals must include the involvement of pathologists and/or laboratory scientists as a key part of the activity and applicants are advised to contact the public engagement team prior to submitting an application.
All projects funded through the scheme must be completed by the 30th June 2018 and the closing date for applications is the 5th June 2017. Applicants are encouraged to contact the public engagement team prior to submitting an application.
The team will be able to offer practical support in terms of help, advice and resources and will be happy to discuss potential project ideas. They will also be able to put applicants in touch with pathologists who may be willing to be involved in their project.
