Curiosity aims to use the power of exciting and engaging science activities to create change for children and young people experiencing disadvantage in the UK. It is a partnership between BBC Children in Need and Wellcome.
BBC Children in Need and Wellcome are looking for new projects that make a positive difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK through engagement with and participation in science. BBC Children in Need and Wellcome. want to fund organisations who are excited to learn about the difference science can make and can help them learn too.
You can apply for two levels of award:
- small grants – up to £10,000 a year for up to three years
- large grants – up to £40,000 a year for up to three years
Curiosity is a one-off scheme and this is the last round of funding.
BBC Children in Need and Wellcome expect to make no more than 35 small awards, and no more than 15 large awards in total in this final round. This means that only the strongest ideas will have a full assessment.
