Engaging in Science

Wellcome science funding exhibition

Extract from the Wellcome Trust website

The Wellcome Trust wants people to consider, question and debate the key issues in science and society, and so each year offers over £3 million – through a wide-ranging Engaging Science grants programme – to support projects that encourage people of all ages and from all walks of life to be informed, inspired and involved.

Whether you work in science, the arts, media or education, they want to hear your ideas for projects that build excitement and interest around science and society. They support projects in many different areas, including film-making, theatre productions, exhibitions, discussion and policy-influencing events and multimedia.

They also directly commission work and develop partnerships with other organisations to reach broader audiences and support innovative practice.
