The Royal Society of Chemistry's Inclusion and Diversity Fund provides financial support for innovative products, activities and research projects that promote inclusion and diversity in the chemical science community.
They will consider individual applications up to the value of £5,000.
Applications can be submitted throughout the year, but funding decisions will only be made twice a year. The next deadline is 17 June, decisions will be made by end of July.
All applications should clearly show that the proposed project:
- is centred on increasing diversity and inclusion in the chemical sciences community;
- is relevant to our inclusion and diversity strategy;
- has a clearly defined target audience;
- has a clearly defined intended impact;
- is deliverable
- includes clear evaluation plans;
Please note: The proposed project must focus on diversity and inclusion – outreach projects with a small diversity component will not be considered.
In addition, applicants should show that the requested funding will make a significant difference to their ability to deliver the project.
