Funding Sources

Sources of funding for public engagement activities will be posted here.

WQBP Public Engagement Fund

The WQBP Public Engagement fund is closed for this year, it will be reopening for new applications in the new academic year. Details will be announced nearer the time.

The purpose of the PE Fund is to pump-prime small strategic projects in public engagement, specifically for people wishing to engage the public with their research activity. Applications are welcomed from all Warwick researchers from any Department whose research has a health or medicine-related focus.

Wellcome Public Engagment Fund

The Wellcome Public Engagement Fund grants awards ranging between £25,000 to £3 million over a maximum of a 3-year period.

This fund is open to a range of backgrounds and encourages you to engage with the public in new, creative, and innovative ways. Proposals are expected to address at least one of the three key aims to:

  • empower people, so that more people can access, use, respond to and participate in health research and innovation
  • improve health research by making it more people-centred, understanding people’s experience and drawing on that knowledge
  • help people value and think critically about science, health research, innovation and the role these play in society.

Wellcome Research Enrichment Funding

The Wellcome Trust invites applications for its research enrichment funding. This enables current Wellcome grant holders to increase the impact of their work in regards to public engagement, open research and diversity and inclusion.

Other sources of funding can be found on the central public engagement website.
