British Science Week Grants

Posted by Nic Bygrave on Oct 29, 2015 8:23 am

Each year, the BSA makes grants available to schools and organisations to help them put on events or activities for British Science Week. Grants may be used to fund a range of activities – from inviting a speaker to providing resources or organising a trip.  In 2016, we will have a number of grant schemes available, providing small pots of funding from £200 to £700.
