Public Engagement Grant Scheme
Our public engagement grant scheme provides up to £3000 to individuals and organisations running physics-based events and activities in the UK and Ireland.
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.
The grant scheme has two rounds each year. Round 2 of the Public Engagement Grant Scheme 2018 is now closed.
Applications to the grant scheme are not currently being accepted.
For more information about project eligibility and how to apply, please read the full applicant guidelines.
Successful applicants will be required to submit an evaluation of their project.
