NSEW grants for branches

This grant scheme is now closed. 

Grants of up to £350 are available for branches to run events for National Science & Engineering Week (NSEW), 14 – 23 March 2014. You could use a grant to fund a wide range of exciting activities to raise the profile of your branch.

Why take part in NSEW?

Events for National Science & Engineering Week 2013 were attended by over 2 million people and generated loads of press coverage. By running an event for NSEW your branch can take advantage of this national buzz and of the Association’s regional press releases. Be part of the UK's widest grass roots celebration of Science & Engineering.
