The Wellcome Trust’s People and Society Awards are aimed at enabling the public to explore biomedical science – including its history, how it shapes culture and society and the implications that it has for ethics. The awards represent a significant commitment to public engagement in biomedical science and are open to a wider range of people, including academics and practitioners.
The People Awards, for up to and including £30,000, fund small to medium sized one-off projects. The next deadline is 27th July, 2012. The Society Awards, above £30,000, are intended to scale-up People Awards or provide funding for larger projects that seek to engage an audience across the UK. There is a deadline for a themed call (and this year it is Health in a Changing World) on 5th October, 2012.
Much more detail about the awards can be found on the Wellcome Trust’s website.
