Small Grants Scheme

Do you have a great idea for a digital engagement activity? Are you keen to get experience of engaging people with research?

Funded by the Centre for Doctoral Studies and the Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund, PhD students, research staff and academic staff at King's are invited to apply for a small grant of up to £750 to deliver an online engagement activity.

How does it work?

Awardees are expected to complete the delivery of the activity or programme within 12 months of the award, write a blog post about the outcomes of their activities and attend a follow up workshop to share experiences and learning.

Priority will be given to projects which facilitate two-way communication (dialogue). For example, these could be activities which enable audiences to share their views on the future direction of research in a particular area. The primary audience(s) for activities should be non-specialists, e.g. families, school children, community groups.

Who can apply?

Grant applications will be accepted from any King’s postgraduate research student or member of research staff. Academic staff working in areas of research which fall within the remit of the Wellcome Trust are also eligible.

How much is available?

Grants of up to £750 will be awarded. 

How do I apply?

Applicants must complete this short online application form. 

Application Form - Deadline 21 June 2020
