Grant Programme to Fund Biochemical Outreach Projects Opens for Applications (UK)

The Biochemical Society has announced that its Outreach Grants programme will re-open for applications on the 11th January 2019.

Grants of up to £1,000 will be available to increase participation in the molecular biosciences at school level and the community through engagement activities.

Within school projects the Society is looking to support projects with emphasis on molecular bioscience for upper secondary school age audiences and above.

For primary school age audiences, the focus can be on biology or on all sciences.

The type of events funded could include:

• Activities for a science club

• Workshops for students or teachers

• Lectures from research scientists (including PhD students and post-doc's).

Projects more likely to receive funding will involve collaborations between, several schools/universities or a mix of organizations; establish links/relationships between schools and universities or industry; promote molecular bioscience career opportunities; or be submitted by an applicant with previous experience in outreach activities (although first time applicants are also welcomed).

Past projects include "Detective Sciences" - an event that formed part of the Science week activities at Abercanaid Community School, Merthyr Tydfil.

The focus of the event was centred on promoting scientific investigation, scientific thinking and enhancing English language skills.
