The British Society for the History of Science Outreach and Education Committee offers grants of up to £200 to support education and outreach projects in the history of science. These are offered on a quarterly basis, and we would like to invite applications for the next deadline: 15th May.
These grants are intended to generate engagement with the history of science, technology and medicines. Previous OEC grant initiatives have supported public events in festivals, conferences and heritage sites as well as innovative teaching. Funded activities might include, for example, supporting the costs of holding a public event, the creation of small public display, or the translation of research into educational resources. Please note there are no restrictions on who can apply for this grant. We welcome applications from researchers at any stage of their career, as well as from heritage organisations, community or interest groups.
We favour projects with well-defined outcomes, clearly targeted audiences, and in particular those that demonstrably engage new publics with HSTEM scholarship.
If you are interested in applying for a grant then you will find the application form available here.
Please send your completed application form and any queries to Dr Elizabeth Haines – [email protected]. There will be two further deadlines in 2018: 15th August, 15th November.
