Small grants (up to a maximum of £500 per application) are available to support Classics-themed public engagement activities. Applicants must be UK-based researchers and preference will be given to proposals for activities which involve collaboration with external partners such as: creative practitioners; community groups or charities; heritage organisations; museums, libraries or galleries; and schools.

Fundable activities may run in various formats but must demonstrate aspects of research in Classics (broadly defined) in ways that are accessible, enjoyable and understandable for non-specialist audiences. Public lectures and school talks will not normally be eligible for funding from the scheme. For further details of eligible costs and how to apply please see the application form.

Applications will be considered by a committee. Successful applicants will be expected to submit a short post for publication on the ICS blog after their funded activity has taken place.

The forthcoming deadline is:

1st May 2024
