BSA - The Highlands and Islands Climate Change Community Grant


The British Science Association’s (BSA) Highlands and Islands Climate Change Community Grant will offer grants to community groups in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland to work with a researcher to run a project exploring a local climate issue that matters to them.

Community groups – especially those who do not typically engage with science, research and innovation – are invited to apply for funding to support projects based on a new idea or building on existing work by the community that would benefit from partnership with a researcher. They are particularly keen to hear from communities about projects that seek to explore ways of adapting to the effects of climate change, for example, extreme weather events or decreased air quality.
