Curiosity grants are not about education but about using science as a tool to make wider changes in the lives of children and young people experiencing disadvantage. Projects should encourage young people to be curious about the world around them and inside them, making a positive difference in their lives: building confidence and self-esteem, developing life skills and expanding horizons.
Applicants must be able to explain:
Curiosity aims to make a difference for children and young people by improving access to, engagement with and understanding of science.
The closing date for Round 2 applications is 12 April 2019 (11.59pm). This is the final round for this scheme.
