Public Engagement - funding
The Society for endocrinology offers up to £1,000 to support the organisation, production and delivery of outreach activities, aimed at school children or other audiences to engage with hormones and the impact of endocrinology.
The Society for Endocrinology invites applications for its public engagement grants. These support the organisation and delivery of outreach activities, aimed at school children or other audiences, that engage these audiences with hormones and the impact of endocrinology.
Full and early-career members may apply. Full members need to have held membership for a minimum of one year and early-career members need to have held membership for a minimum of six months at the time of application.
For the next round, they are encouraging applications that may be suitable as resources for their 'You and Your Hormones' website and help to engage more people with endocrinology and its impact.
