If you're brand new to engagement or have years of experience, the Engage Grants are designed to support you to do public engagement, whatever your level of expertise. The Engage Grants are open to researchers, experimental and technical staff and doctoral students at any level.
With our Engage Grants, we aim to support you to increase your skills and understanding of public engagement by funding activities where you have an opportunity to give public engagement a go for yourselves. The Engage Grants are made up of two funds:
Initiator - for projects up to £750
This fund is to support applicants with little or no experience of public engagement with your research to carry out small-scale or pilot public engagement projects to:
- support your learning about engagement
- gain experience of engagement
- develop your engagement ideas
Progression - for projects up to £3,500
This fund is to support applicants who have prior experience with public engagement to further develop and deepen your skills and knowledge. You could apply for funds to carry out activities that:
- expand your existing activities
- develop your leadership and facilitation skills in public engagement
- develop and deliver innovative engagement activities
The Engage Grants are now open and the call will close on Monday 31 October 2022 at 5pm. Please email applications to (email@example.com)[mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org).
