Royal College of Pathologists Innovation Grant Scheme, deadline 1 July
11 June 2020
Public Engagement - funding
The Public Engagement Innovation Grant Scheme was introduced to give financial support for the delivery of a range of pathology-related activities and events throughout the UK. Grants of up to £1,000 are available for individuals or organisations.
Given the current situation, they explicitly have stated that they'd be happy to receive proposals for online/virtual activities.
The Innovation Grant Scheme aims to:
- inspire innovative and creative pathology related public engagement projects and activities
- raise public awareness of, and engagement with, pathology, in particular with those who would not normally engage with the topic
- develop the science communication skills of pathologists and laboratory scientists
- stimulate discussion about pathology between pathologists and the public in order to motivate, inspire and enthuse both parties about the value of pathology and its role in prevention, diagnosis and treatment
You don't need to be a member of the College but the activity should include pathologists and/or laboratory scientists as a key part of the activity.
As always, it's always useful to look at previously funded projects, and these are available here.
