Educational Grants Scheme


The RSC Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) has been providing funds for small educational projects in schools and colleges for many years.   The unifying theme of all of these projects has been their common objective of enhancing the learning (and teaching) experience in relation to chemistry for students (and teachers).  Since 2007 we have had nearly 100 applications for funds, most of which the BMCS has taken pleasure in supporting.

During this period we have offered support in two main areas: Enhanced Equipment and Chemistry Clubs.  While we will continue to encourage applications for both of these funding streams we are adding two more funding areas to the portfolio:  One is in relation to encouraging projects that bring together schools/ colleges and their local universities (Partnership of 3) and the other is to support appropriate activities in undergraduate Chemistry Societies (UG ChemSoc).


Enhanced Equipment

For Primary and Secondary Schools to fund equipment not available through their mainstream budget.

Chemistry Clubs

Funds for activities run at schools/colleges outside the normal science timetable.

Partnership of 3

Supporting activities that bring together at least three different partners for chemistry outreach activities.

UG ChemSoc

Funding for student societies promoting biological and medicinal chemistry.

Funding through RSC Local Sections

Collaboration between schools and colleges with their RSC Local Section.
