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 open.
