COPUS offers grants to support projects that enable people to access contemporary issues and ideas in science, engineering and technology, whether it be through debate or demonstration, interaction or exhibition, the arts or other pursuits.
There are currently three types of COPUS grant, all for projects within the UK: (1) a seed grant intended to pump prime activities on a local scale (maximum £3,000); (2) a development grant to support larger scale initiatives (maximum £20,000); and (3) a National Science Week grant for activities and events specifically intended for the annual National Science Week (maximum £3,000).
All applicants must be resident in the UK. Applicants need to show clearly how their project relates to public understanding of science in the UK. Established, as well as novel, projects are considered. Further information online.
