Enriching Engagement is a new pilot Wellcome-funded grants programme open to Wellcome grant holders and awardees at the University of Oxford, to develop and deliver Public Engagement with Research projects.
This pilot will offer a new way of encouraging, supporting and awarding Wellcome Public Engagement Enrichment grants.
The first call for funding will open in June 2019; with a second call for funding in early 2020. Two levels of funding will be available: £10k – £30k and £50k – £100k.
This is a grants scheme with a difference:
no lengthy written applications required – just great ideas and effective project planning
workshops and one-to-one surgeries to inspire and shape your thinking (including those new to public engagement)
no written reviews and closed panels – all applicants will be invited to discuss their proposal directly with the funding committee members.
