The Community Grants for British Science Week 2024 are now open for applications!

Supported by UK Research and Innovation, Community Grants help eligible community groups to organise events and activities for their audiences during British Science Week (8-17 March 2024), expanding the number of people who enjoy and take part in science.

For British Science Week 2024, there are grants of £500 and £1000 for community groups that work with people who are typically underrepresented in science, and which set out to deliver an event or activity that involves the local community, challenges science stereotypes and inspires ongoing science engagement.

Please check the Community Grant guidelines to find all the information you need on how to apply, and whether your community group is eligible.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact

The deadline for applications is 11.59pm on Monday 6 November 2023, so be sure to complete your form in good time!
