Funding area: Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM)
Small Outreach Grants for individuals or groups to develop public understanding of science activities in Scotland in the field of Astronomy are available through the Robert Cormack Bequest Committee.
This scheme is intended to help set up new projects, or to add new elements to existing ones, rather than to fund ongoing activities. Up to £1,000 (in total) is available each year for these projects.
Funded projects must benefit a wider audience (e.g. public visitors, whole school) rather than the recipients of the funds (e.g. Astronomical Society, School Class or Club).
This call is currently closed for 2019. The RSE is currently undertaking a review of its Research Awards Programme and announcements on future funding opportunities are planned for Spring 2020.
A total of £1,000 is available each year for these projects.
Projects should be completed within one year of receiving funding.
