Apply for funding for up to £2000 for UCL public engagement projects

We are excited to announce that the latest round of Beacon Bursaries opens today.

UCL staff and postgraduate research students can apply for up to £2000 to engage communities and organisations from outside UCL with their research or teaching.

Beacon Bursaries are designed to increase staff and postgraduate research students’ activity, skills, and understanding of public engagement.

Previous winners include Dr Evangelos Himonides whose Beat Boxing workshops brought together clinicians, patients with laryngectomies and young East London audiences to explore different techniques of speech rehabilitation and voice production. Iwona Bisaga’s project focused on the needs and aspirations of off-grid energy users in remote Rwanda, running energy mapping and photography workshops to better understand how energy shaped their lives.
