Information for sponsors

Sponsor a student

Institutions and companies have the opportunity to sponsor a student aged 18 or above to experience the Festival’s full week of activities through the Festival bursary scheme. It is an outstanding opportunity for students to broaden their horizons, meet leading scientists and speakers, engage in debate and discussion about the impact of science in society and enjoy the atmosphere of an event that is extensively covered in the media.

Each bursary costs £350 and the package includes:

  • Accommodation for seven nights
  • Weekly pass to the festival
  • Breakfast each morning
  • Daily vouchers for lunch and dinner
  • Student social.

Donate a bursary

Each institution or company can purchase either one or a number of the bursary packages. Please read the full information for sponsors to find out how to take part in the scheme
