International year of the periodic table
We are inviting applications for specific rounds of funding to support and celebrate the International year of the periodic table in 2019. Please see the dates and categories below for more information.
This application is for our Member Network groups to apply for up to £1,000 for their group to support the international year of the periodic table.
This application is for RSC members, LCP schools and ChemSocs to apply for up to £500 funding to support the international year of the periodic table
Funding for these two grants is open all year round and will considered at four checkpoints in the year with deadlines of Monday 14 January 2019, Monday 15 April 2019, Monday 15 July 2019 and Monday 14 October 2019. There are limited funds available and applications will be considered at each of these check points until all funds have been allocated. Please note: this may mean that this grant could close early.
Applications to support centralised IUPAC activity for IYPT e.g. Global Women's Breakfast are welcomed.
The next deadline will be at noon on Monday 15 April 2019.
Showcasing the Periodic Table
18 - 24 November 2019
Chemistry Week is an annual celebration of the chemical sciences, and is centred around our members sharing their passion with public and school audiences. It is an opportunity to organise events and activities that connect chemistry with local people and communities to:
- promote a positive image of chemistry and sciences
- demonstrate to people within the local community how chemistry is relevant and present in everyday life.
This year we want to invite our members to design and deliver events to celebrate the International Year of the Periodic Table (IYPT) with their local community. We are looking to support creative, diverse and innovative engagement opportunities for local audiences providing chemistry connections with audiences that may not have access to science outreach activities.
If you are looking for ideas, our Local Sections are a great place to start. Dedicated members of Local Section committees organise and run a vast programme of activities throughout the year. For inspiration take a look at the stories from previous events and activities on our Community news pages.
If you are interested in participating get in touch to find out if what is going on in your area or apply for a Chemistry Week grant to organise an event yourself. Grants up to £750 are available to support members to organise activities taking place during Chemistry Week and celebrate the theme 'Showcasing the Periodic Table'.
Applications for grants are currently closed and will open in Spring 2019.
