The Royal College of Pathologists has announced that applications are now being accepted for the Public Engagement Innovation Grant Scheme.
Under this scheme grants of up to £1,000 are available for individuals or organisations who wish to run a project that engages audiences such as secondary school students, undergraduates, health professionals or local communities with pathology. All proposals must include the involvement of pathologists and/or laboratory scientists as a key part of the activity and applicants are advised to contact the public engagement team prior to submitting an application. All projects funded through the scheme must be completed by the 30th June 2020. Information on the type of projects funded in the past can be found here.
Applicants are encouraged to contact the public engagement team prior to submitting an application. The team will be able to offer practical support in terms of help, advice and resources and will be happy to discuss potential project ideas. They will also be able to put applicants in touch with pathologists who may be willing to be involved in a project. The team can be contacted via email on email@example.com or by phone on 020 7451 6717.
The closing date for applications has been extended to the 1st July 2020.
