RP - People awards

RP - People awards

The Wellcome Trust invites applications for its people awards. These enable individuals to explore the impact of biomedical science on society, its historical roots, effects on different cultures, or the ethical questions that it raises. The awards support small-to-medium-sized one-off projects or projects that pilot new ideas with an aim to scale up or become sustainable following the grant, or they can part-fund larger projects. Projects should aim to achieve at least one of the following:
•stimulate interest, excitement and debate about biomedical science through various methods;
•support formal and informal learning about biomedical science;
•reach new audiences not normally engaged with biomedical science, as well as continuing to target existing audiences;
•examine the social, cultural, historical and ethical impact of biomedical science;
•encourage new ways of thinking about biomedical science;
•encourage high-quality interdisciplinary practice and collaborative partnerships;
•investigate and test new methods of engagement, participation and education.
