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 2018 are now closed. Check back in spring 2019 for the next round of funding.
The UCL Public Engagement Unit can provide advice and feedback on draft applications, and answer any questions about applying. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We awarded 7 Beacon Bursaries in the most recent round. Read more about them here.
