This grant is available to almost anyone, including schools, museums, grant-funded researchers, STFC scientists and engineers, amateur astronomy groups, and science communicators.
All applications must include a researcher in an area of science or technology that is STFC-funded – who may play an active role in engagement activities. However, this is not mandatory, and they may simply act as an advisor on the scientific content.
The grant is typically given to projects that cover the following topics: nuclear physics, accelerator science, solar and planetary science, astronomy, particle physics, cosmology and particle astrophysics. Or, clearly align with the work of the STFC.
In 2019, the fund supported a project called ‘Space for You Key Stage Two’ where children with low capital science backgrounds learnt from researchers about themes such as light, space and magnetism.
There is an online application form.
The submission window for applications is 4pm Thursday 22nd October 2020.
Grants of up to £15,000 are awarded.
