The British Society for the History of Science Outreach and Engagement Grants, deadline 17 May
30 April 2019
Public Engagement - funding
The British Society for the History of Science Outreach and Engagement Committee offers grants of up to £200 to support engagement and outreach projects in the history of science. We are keen to encourage projects that engage with the history of science, technology and medicine in new and exciting ways and are applicable to their intended audiences.
For information on successful projects that have been supported by the OEC please see the projects section of our website. Previous OEC Project Grant initiatives have included public events, the development of materials for schools, and work with collections and heritage sites. However, we are always hoping to be surprised by new ideas and formats.
Please note – the OEC Project Grant is primarily intended as a seedcorn fund for new initiatives and to support small-scale projects or events. If your proposed project is part of a larger scheme of activity, please be prepared to describe what specific extras will be delivered by the funds from the OEC Project Grant.
There will be four rounds in 2019:
- Friday 15 February
- Friday 17 May
- Friday 16 August
- Friday 15 November
