British Science Festival – Community Grants

Posted on: November 14, 2019

The British Science Festival is Europe’s longest standing science Festival, travelling to a different place in the United Kingdom each year. Our Festival aims to connect people with scientists, engineers, technologists and social scientists.

Each year, we bring an inspiring programme of free events to the public over four or five days, bursting with exciting opportunities to get involved in. Our talks, workshops and drop-in events span a diverse range of subjects that encompass science in the broadest sense, promising something for everyone.

Hosted by Anglia Ruskin University, the 2020 Festival will be held in Chelmsford and Essex from 8-12 September.

Applications are now open for our 2020 community grants! The BSA is providing grants of £500 to community groups/organisations in Chelmsford that work directly with audiences who are traditionally underrepresented and currently not engaged in science activity. We want to empower and support community groups to run their own science activities as part of the British Science Festival, enabling new local audiences to engage with science.

DEADLINE: Spring 2020
