Royal Society of Chemistry funds small projects (up to £2,000) to run chemistry-based activities and events for the public and schools. Deadline noon 2 October.
Through the fund they aim to support projects that:
- maximise their members' outreach and engagement contribution
- offer teachers a range of effective curriculum-enriching activities and opportunities to further engage their students with outreach
- provide hard-to-reach student audiences with inspiring chemistry engagement opportunities, delivered or coordinated by skilled people
- increase chemistry and chemists' influence in public discourse and decision-making in line with the findings of the Public Attitude to Chemistry research.
The grant scheme is open to all (individuals and organisations).

This is a rolling scheme, with a big sibling (Large awards, between £2,000 and £10,000), with the next deadline in January 2018.
