Do you have a great idea for a project that will help make the chemical sciences community more inclusive and diverse?
About the fund
The Inclusion & Diversity Fund provides financial support for innovative products, activities and research projects.
Previous recipients of funding have included projects related to gender, disability, socio-economic background, language, race and ethnicity, the LGBT+ community and more. These have been delivered via initiatives such as data collection and analysis, workshops, conferences and hackathons.
Who can apply
The grant scheme is open to everyone (individuals and organisations). This includes, but is not limited to, members of the Royal Society of Chemistry, member-led groups, researchers in academia or industry, museums, community groups, not-for-profit organisations, arts groups and libraries.
Previous recipients of any of our grants are welcome to apply for funding. This can be to scale-up a project that already exists or to fund the development of an original project. Applicants should not resubmit an unsuccessful application unless invited to do so.
