Kick Start Grants
This scheme offers grants for schools in challenging circumstances to organise their own events as part of British Science Week. There are three options available:
- Kick Start grant: A grant of £300 for your school to run an activity
- Kick Start More grant: A grant of £700 for your school to host a science event or activity which involves your students and the local community.
- Kick Start Youth grant: A grant of £150 for your school to run an activity during British Science Week organised by students.
This scheme offers £500 to £1000 grants for community groups that work directly with audiences who are traditionally under-represented and currently not engaged in science activity. Our definition of groups that are underrepresented in science includes:
- people who are Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME)
- people with low socio-economic status (SES), including people disadvantaged in terms of education and income
- young people facing adversity, including those not in education, employment or training (NEET)
- people with a disability, defined as a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term effect on someone’s ability to do normal daily activities (Equalities Act 2010)
- people living in a remote and rural location, defined as settlements of less than 10,000 people
- girls and women
