BBC Children in Need’s Curiosity Fund is accepting applications from across the UK.

Curiosity is a brand new £2.5m partnership between BBC Children in Need and the Wellcome Trust which will use the power of exciting and engaging science activities to create change for children and young people experiencing
disadvantage in the UK.

BBC Children in Need are inviting applications for grants of up to £10,000 to fund projects that engage children and young people in science based activities. This is not about formal education. Projects should encourage young people to be curious about the world around them and inside them, making a positive difference in their lives: building confidence and self-esteem, developing life skills and expanding horizons. You do not have to be an expert in science, or even have delivered science activities before to participate, and they encourage organisations who want to try something new to apply.

This is just one of the many grant and award programmes featured in the August 2017 edition of Funding Digest.
