The Society for Applied Microbiology offer public engagement grants up to £3000 to support events where aspects of microbiology are promoted to the general public and other relevant stakeholders.
Events eligible for support can be very diverse, from pieces of art to popular music, or funds may be used to aid individuals to attend and exhibit at public science festivals. The main criterion is that the event/activity must in some way promote the science of microbiology.
Eligible persons are Members and non-Members of the Society. Members should have no funding from any additional source.
There is no deadline, but you should allow 6 weeks between submission and the planned start date for your event/project.
