URSS Public Engagement Initiative

We are pleased to announce that the URSS will consider applications for Research + Public Engagement or Public Engagement only projects for the 2022 session. This may take one of two forms

1) A research project with a public engagement element . This means you would complete your research project first then design a public engagement activity to share your results. This activity may take place after the summer research period.

2) A public engagement-focused project. This could mean that you design an engagement initiative to share research, rather than doing the new research yourself.  

If you would like to include a public engagement element please indicate this in your application. WIE can offer advice and support for public engagement and we strongly advise you to contact them before you make your application at or
