Public Engagement beacon bursaries available to staff and students

30 September 2015

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 £2,000 are normally available two-three times a year. 

The deadline for the next round is October 30th 2015.

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
