British Ecological Society's Outreach Grants are available to promote and engage the public with the science of ecology. Funders will support projects that:
increase public understanding of, and engagement with, ecology
stimulate discussion about ecology and its implications for society
inspire and enthuse people of all ages about the science of ecology, especially those not previously interested
develop skills in communicating the science of ecology.
Who can apply
Awards are open to individuals and organisations to organise ecological public engagement events. This includes, but is not limited to, BES members, researchers, schools, museums, libraries and community groups. Applications from museums and schools are welcome, but projects must involve significant outreach beyond schools.
