The Science and Technology Facilities Council has announced that its Spark Awards programme has re-opened for applications. Grants of up to £15,000 are available to fund public engagement activities that inspire and involve audiences with science and technology.
Activities must focus on astronomy, solar and planetary science, particle physics, particle astrophysics, cosmology, nuclear physics or accelerator science.
Almost anyone can apply for a Spark Award, including grant-funded researchers, STFC scientists and engineers, facility users, schools, museums, science communicators, and amateur astronomy groups.
Before submitting an application, applicants are encouraged to contact the Public Engagement Team to discuss their ideas.
The deadline to apply is 4pm on the 24th October 2019.
