Do you have an idea for a project or activity, or a need for materials or resources, that will help you to connect your research or teaching with people outside UCL? Do you need funding to improve your skills, share public engagement ideas or arrange meetings and dialogue events?
Beacon Bursaries of up to £2000 are available three times a year. The November 2013 deadline has now passed and the next deadline will be in March 2014.
These bursaries have been designed to support staff and postgraduate research students at UCL to do public engagement. This scheme funds public engagement activities that increase staff and postgraduate research students’ activity, skills, and understanding of public engagement. Find out more about projects funded in the past.
Bursaries are part of a strategic programme of activities that aim to embed public engagement as a normal, valued activity for UCL staff and postgraduate research students. Applications are made using a short form, the latest versions of which can be found here:
Please note that these documents will be updated in advance of the next deadline.
We strongly advise you to read the application guidance document to improve your chances of making a successful application. Applications will be judged by a panel of four UCL staff with extensive public engagement experience. These staff are not members of the UCL Public Engagement Unit.
Under normal circumstances, applicants are informed of the outcome within a month of the deadline. In the November 2013 round, applicants will be informed by 18 December 2013. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
If your application is funded, we’ll send you a short learning and evaluation form to fill in at the end of the project. Completing this form is a requirement of accepting the bursary funding.
For any help or questions about applying for Beacon Bursary funding, please email us at email@example.com. The staff of the UCL Public Engagement Unit are not members of the selection panel and can provide advice and feedback on draft applications in advance of the deadline.
