Funding is available to schools, colleges or universities to support activities that bring together at least three different partners to benefit in the delivery or attendance at a chemistry centered outreach activity.
For example a scheme might involve a university and an industry providing an initiative for secondary students; it might involve a university collaborating with a sixth form college in providing an experience for KS3/ 4 students (it may be that staff and students from the same institution are considered as different partners if they both have significant and different roles in the delivery of the proposed programme).
In all cases the activity needs to involve the development of the practical skills/ experience in chemistry of the target group in a manner that is not achievable through normal timetabled activities.
Strong applications will be able to demonstrate, in addition to key scientific benefits, how as many of the partners in the scheme as possible will develop through involvement in the scheme.
In addition, schemes that involve visits from one partner constituency to another will be particularly favoured. Applications will only be accepted from a partner involved in educational delivery and will be for sums up to £1000.
