The mission of the British Science Week Community Grant 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.
The scheme offers grants for community groups that work directly with audiences who are traditionally under-represented and currently not engaged in science activity. This includes:
people who are Black Asian Minority Ethnic;
people with low socioeconomic status, including people disadvantaged in terms of education and income;
young people facing adversity, including those not in education, employment or training;
people with a disability, defined as a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term effect on someone’s ability to do normal daily activities;
people living in a remote and rural location, defined as settlements of less than 10,000 people; and/or
girls and women.
Who can apply
To be eligible for a grant, you must represent a community-based group or organisation that works directly with audiences who are traditionally underrepresented and currently not engaged in science activity.
