All activities must be completed within 12 months of the date of funding.
Medium and large grants

A member of staff will work with each successful applicant to devise an appropriate payment schedule. This will be done on a case by case basis and formalised with a contract.
Recognising our support
All successful applicants must acknowledge our support in any materials that are produced as part of the project. This may include, but is not limited to, promotional materials, websites and educational resources.
All successful applicants will receive a brand-pack containing instructions of how to appropriately acknowledge our support. The pack will include a number of logo and text templates, along with guidelines of how to use them.
Medium and large grants
A member of staff will work with each successful applicant to ensure an appropriate level of acknowledgement.
Evaluation and reporting
All successful applicants will be required to submit an evaluation report within 12 weeks of completion of the project. We will provide a report template and will share the evaluation of all the projects that we support financially on the British Science Association Collective Memory.
The quality of the report will be taken into account if an applicant reapplies to the Outreach Fund at a later date. All those who fail to submit an appropriate evaluation form will be blacklisted and unable to secure any future funding.
