Royal Society of Chemistry offers small (up to £5,000) and large (up to £10,000) grants to enable members, individuals and organisations to run chemistry-based public and schools engagement activities.

The Royal Society of Chemistry invites applications for its outreach fund.

These enable members, individuals and organisations to run chemistry-based public and schools engagement activities.

The trust supports projects that:

  • maximise 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.

Applicants may include society members, member-led groups, researchers in academia or industry, museums, community groups, non-profit organisations, arts groups and libraries. They should seek to engage with members and member groups. All activity must take place within the UK or Republic of Ireland.

The grants are split into two categories:

  • Small grants: up to £5,000
  • Large grants: between £5,001 and £10,000.
