British Science Association - Community Grants


The mission of the British Science Week Community Grant Scheme is to expand the audiences that engage with science and self-identify as having an interest in science by empowering and supporting community groups to run their own science activities during British Science Week.

  • people who are Black Asian Minority Ethnic
  • people with low socioeconomic status, including people disadvantaged in terms of education and income
  • young people facing adversity, including those not in education, employment or training
  • people with a disability, defined as a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term effect on someone’s ability to do normal daily activities
  • people living in a remote and rural location, defined as settlements of less than 10,000 people
