The British Science Festival student bursary scheme offers 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.

Organisations have the opportunity to sponsor students who are above the age of eighteen and are studying at any level.
