Beacon Bursaries
Funding for up to £2000 for UCL public engagement projects

The Beacon 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. 

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.

Applications for 2019 are now closed. We expect to open the next funding round in Summer Term 2020.

We awarded 8 Beacon Bursaries in the most recent round. Read more about them here.

You can also download a list of all previously funded projects.
