WELLCOME RESEARCH ENRICHMENT FUND 

Enriching Engagement is a new pilot Wellcome-funded grants programme open to Wellcome grant holders and awardees at the University of Oxford, to develop and deliver Public Engagement with Research projects.

This pilot will offer a new way of encouraging, supporting and awarding Wellcome Public Engagement Enrichment grants.

Two levels of funding will be available: £10k - £30k and £50k - £100k.

This is a grants scheme with a difference:

  • no lengthy written applications required - just great ideas and effective project planning
  • workshops and one-to-one surgeries to inspire and shape your thinking (including those new to public engagement)
  • no written reviews and closed panels - all applicants will be invited to discuss their proposal directly with the funding committee members.
