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 currently awarded on a quarterly basis. The next upcoming deadline is November 15th, which is the final round for 2018.
- the creation of an interactive exhibit about the history of entomology that complemented a display on insects in fiction at the Story Museum, Oxford
- research for a series of innovative unofficial tours of the Science Museum investigating queer histories of science
- a classroom activity that will take research from the Darwin Correspondence Project to school children in Key Stages 2/3
If you are interested in applying for a grant then you will find the application form available at: http://www.bshs.org.uk/grants/outreach-and-education-project-grants
