These funds are specifically available for projects which achieve some or all of the following:
Applications are particularly welcomed for funding based on proposals which enhance the reputation and visibility of science and technology at Lancaster, promote and explain science and technology research and capitalise on the inspirational value of STEM subject for many audiences, including the general public, schools, young people and policy makers. Applications which have already secured additional funding from other sources are encouraged, as are those which may have longer-term promotional benefits. Applications will be reviewed by the Science and Technology Outreach Committee.
You can apply for up to £3000 but in exceptional circumstances, consideration will be given to proposals for amounts exceeding £3000 where projects can demonstrate a greater impact and strategic requirement for funding. Funds will be given to the applicants solely for the purpose stated.
As applicants may not receive the full sum requested, please let the Faculty office know if you are unable to undertake the proposed activity so that funds may be reallocated.
Applications can be considered by correspondence when a fast response to an external opportunity is essential. You may wish to discuss your application with a member of the Outreach Committee.
