Grants are available for community-based groups and organisations in the UK to create events or activities that engage underrepresented audiences as part of British Science Week (BSW).
British Science Week (BSW) is an annual programme of science, technology, engineering, and maths events and activities that takes place across the UK in March each year. The aim of the BSW Community Grants Scheme is to expand the audiences that engage with science and self-identify as having an interest in science by empowering and supporting community groups to run their own science activities during British Science Week.
Community-based groups and organisations in the UK that work directly with people who are traditionally hard-to-reach and currently not engaged in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activity can apply. Two levels of grants are available: £500 grants to run one or more events during British Science Week or £1,000 grants to run one or more events during British Science Week, as well as follow-up activities that will lead to continued engagement after British Science Week.
