Curiosity: BBC Children in Need and the Wellcome Trust

Leave a comment

Curiosity is a brand new £2.5m partnership between BBC Children in Need and the Wellcome Trust which will use the power of exciting and engaging science activities to create change for children and young people experiencing disadvantage in the UK.

They are inviting applications for grants of up to £10,000 to fund projects that engage children and young people in science based activities. Projects should encourage young people to be curious about the world around them and inside them, making a positive difference in their lives: building confidence and self-esteem, developing life skills and expanding horizons.

Applications are open now, and will close at midnight on 22 September 2017.

We’ll be running events in July offering opportunities to hear more about the fund, to share your ideas and meet potential partners, including experts in science delivery in an informal setting.

28th July, 12pm-4.30pm, BBC Media City, Salford.
