British Science Week Community Grant Scheme Opens for Application – 9th November 2020 (UK)

The British Science Week Community Grant Scheme has re-opened for applications.  The scheme offers £500-£2,000 grants to community groups that run their own science activities during British Science Week (5-14 March 2021) aimed at audiences who are traditionally under-represented and currently not engaged in science activity during.

This can include:

  • people from ethnic minorities
  • people with low socio-economic status, including people disadvantaged in terms of education and income
  • people with a physical or mental condition or impairment
  • people living in a remote and rural location, defined as settlements of less than 10,000 people
  • girls and women

The deadline for applications is 5pm on the 9th November 2020.

Note: community grants cannot be used for events or activities with school groups unless they are a special needs school. For school activities, the schools themselves, if they meet the eligibility criteria, should apply for the Kick Start Grants.

For any questions, please contact the British Science Association:
