Scientific Outreach Grants

Description

The Society wishes to support scientific outreach activities that communicate the excitement of molecular bioscience to young people and the community.

The aim of the outreach grants is to increase participation in the molecular biosciences at school level and beyond through engaging activities.

Applications are invited for sums up to £1000 to assist with the direct costs associated with an event and expenses incurred (e.g. transport and/or teacher cover). Provision of refreshments would be deemed a very low priority unless the cost is minimal.

By fulfilling our criteria, you can ensure that your outreach proposal is considered by the Biochemical Society. You can further improve your application by proving that your proposal has long-term benefits, is repeatable, links several organisations and reaches those who do not normally participate in scientific outreach.

Events might include:

  • Exciting activities for a science club or public festival
  • Inspiring workshops for students or teachers 
  • Engaging lectures from scientists working in different fields

The Biochemical Society must be acknowledged at the event and in the resources produced. Copies of all materials generated should be submitted to the Society to facilitate wider dissemination to others where appropriate; please keep in mind that the potential legacy of submitted projects – i.e., via the production of resources that may be further and widely distributed – is an added bonus to every application.

A short report of the activity and an evaluation is a condition of the grant. Applicants will not be eligible to apply for future Scientific Outreach Grants until a report and evaluation is complete.

In 2022, the Biochemical Society will be awarding the totality of its Scientific Outreach Grants during the summer run of this scheme. The Scientific Outreach Grants will close for applications on 30 September 2022.
