Public Engagement Grant Scheme

Our public engagement grant scheme provides up to £2000 to individuals and organisations running physics-based events and activities in the UK and Ireland.

The grant scheme has two rounds each year. Round 1 of the Public Engagement Grant Scheme 2018 will open in April 2018 with successful projects to be completed by the end of February 2019. Applications will be open from Monday 9 April 2018 until 12 noon on Monday 7 May 2018. Applicants are encouraged to contact Emma Watson, Outreach Officer, to discuss their application before submitting it. You can arrange a phone call by emailing engagement@iop.org.

The Institute of Physics is looking to fund projects that:

  • Raise public awareness of, and engagement with, contemporary physics.
  • Inspire and enthuse public audiences, especially those not previously interested in physics.
  • Reach adult and family audiences beyond the classroom.
  • Develop the science communication skills of individuals, particularly physicists.

To find out more about projects we’ve previously funded, you can read the project summaries from 2017.
For more information about project eligibility and how to apply, you can read the full applicant guidelines.

Successful applicants will be required to submit an evaluation of their project. You may find the evaluation report template useful when deciding how best to evaluate your project. We have also included the guidelines given to the judging panel.

To apply please complete the application form and the monitoring form and email them to Emma Watson on engagement@iop.org by Monday 7 May 2018.

Applications submitted after Monday 7 May 2018 will not be accepted.

Round 2 of the grant scheme will open in September 2018. If you would like to be notified when the next round is open please sign up to our mailing list:
