Funding for your activities

The British Science Association offers grants to certain schools and organisations to help fund National Science & Engineering Week events and activities. We also offer a range of help guides and activity packs to help you plan your events, along with a guide to funding

For NSEW 2014 there were four NSEW grants available from the British Science Association:

Grant schemes that are now closed:

If you have applied for any of these grant schemes don't forget to also register your event on our event listing so you can request free marketing materials and (if a school) be included in our school prize draw. Register your event here.

 

How-to-guides and ideas

These guides present step-by-step instructions in how to arrange publicity, how to organise an NSEW event or activity and where to find funding.

If you are a beginner or have never organised an event before then our organiser's timeline and NSEW guides in a day will help you get going - these show how you can do science and engineering week activities on a small budget or using our free resources.

You can also download our handy NSEW templates to easily create press releases and press photocall invitations to maximise publicity for your event.

Note: you must be logged in to an account with the British Science Association website in order to access most of these packs. Creating an account is quick, easy and free.
