The British Society for the History of Science Outreach and Engagement Committee offers grants of up to £500 to support engagement and outreach projects in the history of science. We are keen to encourage projects that engage with the history of science, technology and medicine in new and exciting ways and are applicable to their intended audiences.
Please note that the OEC Project Grant is primarily intended as a seedcorn fund for new initiatives and to support small-scale projects or events. If your proposed project is part of a larger scheme of activity, please describe in your application what specific extras will be delivered by the funds from the OEC Project Grant.
Next application round closes 23rd September 2022.
