British Society for Neuroendocrinology Outreach and public engagement grant, no deadline
26 November 2021
Public Engagement - funding
The British Society for Neuroendocrinology offers up to £500 to support its members to organise public engagement activities aimed at school children or the wider public to communicate the science of neuroendocrinology.
The British Society for Neuroendocrinology invites applications for its outreach and public engagement grant. This enables society members to organise public engagement activities aimed at school children or the wider public to communicate the science of neuroendocrinology. Activities supported include:
- presentations that are accessible to members of the public;
- talking to a classroom of children about neuroendocrinology, and careers in science;
- hosting a stand at a science festival;
- developing online, video, audio, or print resources for the public.
Members who have hold their membership for at least six months, and public engagement professionals may apply. Non-members must be partnered with a member of the society to develop and deliver the activity. Preference is given to applications that include activities which promote widening participation in science of historically underrepresented groups.
Grants are worth up to £500 each.
Applications are welcome all year round and will be reviewed by the grants sub-committee. If you are successful, grants will be awarded shortly afterwards.
When multiple applications are received and/or available funding is limited, preference will be given to those applications which include activities which promote widening participation in science of historically under- represented groups.
