The British Ecological Society is offering grants of up to £2,000 for projects that promote and engage the public with the science of ecology.
What is it?
Grants are available for projects that:
- Increase public understanding of, and engagement with, ecology
- Stimulate discussion about ecology and its implications for society
- Inspire and enthuse people of all ages about the science of ecology, especially those not previously interested
- Develop skills in communicating the science of ecology.
Who can apply?
Schools, researchers, museums, libraries and community groups can apply.
Projects run by schools must involve significant outreach beyond school itself – and you need to communicate this in your application. Curriculum based projects will not be considered for funding.
How do I apply?
There is an online application form to complete, which can be accessed via the British Ecological Society website. You can also find project guidance and judging criteria to help you write your application.
The deadline for applications is 27th March 2015.
