They will continue to encourage applications for both of these funding streams and are adding two more funding areas to the portfolio: One is in relation to encouraging projects that bring together schools/ colleges and their local universities (Partnership of 3) and the other is to support appropriate activities in undergraduate Chemistry Societies (UG ChemSoc).
Enhanced Equipment: for equipment that cannot be purchased through a school’s mainstream teaching budget and which would enrich the learning experience of students.
Chemistry Clubs: targeted at activities run at schools/ colleges outside the normal science timetable which may be focused on generating interest in chemistry.
Partnership of 3: 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 centred outreach activity.
