Individuals and organisations such as researchers, museums, schools, community groups, not-for-profit organisations, arts groups and libraries can apply for grants of up to £10,000 to run chemistry-based events and activities for public audiences and in schools.
Priority will be given to projects that raise awareness of the place of chemistry in people’s everyday lives, especially those not already interested in chemistry, and/or develop the science communication skills of people who are already highly trained in chemistry.
The Outreach Fund is split into two categories: Small grants – up to £2,000; and Large grants – between £2,000 and £10,000.
The closing date for small grants is 12 noon on the 10th September 2018. Applications for the large grants programme are currently closed and will re-open for applications in January 2019.
