The British Society for the History of Science Outreach and Engagement Committee offers grants of up to £200 to support engagement and outreach projects in the history of science. These are currently awarded on a quarterly basis. The next deadline is Friday 16th August 2019. Only BSHS members may apply for these grants.
We are seeking projects that engage with the history of science, technology and medicine in new and exciting ways and are applicable to their intended audiences. We are particularly keen to encourage projects that reach audiences that might be new to HoSTEM and those that take innovative formats.
For information on successful projects that have been supported by the OEC please see the news section of our OEC page. Previous OEC Project Grant initiatives have included public events, the development of educational materials for schools, and work with collections and heritage sites. However, we are always hoping to be surprised by new ideas and formats.
Please note – the OEC Project Grant is primarily intended as a seedcorn fund for new initiatives and to support small-scale projects or events. If your proposed project is part of a larger scheme of activity, please be prepared to describe what specific extras will be delivered by the funds from the OEC Project Grant.
Please download the application form HERE. Send your completed form and all queries to Dr Alison Moulds at [email protected]. If you have any queries about the scheme or would like to discuss a project proposal in advance of submitting an application, do get in touch.
