New British Science Festival Grant Scheme Announced For Brighton Community Groups

The British Science Association is providing grants of £500 to community groups/organisations in Brighton that work directly with audiences who are traditionally underrepresented and currently not engaged in science activity. 

They want to empower and support community groups to run their own science activities as part of theBritish Science Festival, enabling new local audiences to engage with science.

There will be interest in supporting events that demonstrate how science is a wider part of culture. 

There will also be priority to events that are embedded in the local community and ones that will have legacy, providing a way for those involved to continue their engagement with science.

Christina Fuentes-Tibbitt, Engagement Manager at The British Science Association, said: 

"With our British Science Festival Community Grants we want to empower and support local groups in Brighton who might not otherwise engage with the British Science Festival. 

"We want everyone in Brighton to join the Festival, and these grants will allow local groups to take ownership over the activities and make science something that"s relevant and interesting to them."

This year the British Science Festival will be jointly hosted by the University of Sussexand the University of Brighton between 5-9 September 2017, transforming the city of Brighton into a vibrant celebration of science, engineering and technology.

The deadline to apply is Friday 26th May 2017 and applicants must complete a short online form.
