Individuals and organisations who wish to hold a one-day biology science festival can apply for grants of up to £500. The aim is to support the celebration of life sciences and to engage the public and families with an array of outreach activities that cover a large range of bioscience topics. 10 grants will be available to run events between 1st October 2019 and 30th September 2020.
The Big Biology Day grants have been made available by the Royal Society of Biology to mark its 10th anniversary year. Big Biology Days look to foster a sense of community within the immediate vicinity of the event and beyond, and work to support the objective of making science an embedded part of everyday culture. Usually hosted within a school or other community building, the event brings together several organisations to inspire interest in the biosciences, by showcasing how biology is changing the world in fun and stimulating ways.
The closing date for applications is the 28th February 2020.
