The purpose of the BSR Rheology Engagement Fund is to facilitate rheologists in the UK to engage the general public and community, to promote rheology and non-Newtonian fluid mechanics to a broader audience. Funding could, for example, cover expenses for exhibits at science fairs or the preparation of video content for wide dissemination.
The BSR will award up to £500.
Applicants must be a member of 9 months standing and may only apply to the RhEF once in any 12-month period.
Submissions should include your name, position and organisation, and a one-page summary of the activity to be supported. Please explain how this activity will engage the public and include a break-down of the projected costs.
Applications should be submitted below and must be received at least 1 month prior to the activity. Up to a maximum of 4 grants will be made each year.
Payment of the award will be made on the receipt of a report suitable for the Bulletin of the Society. Advance payment may be made in certain circumstances; please send enquiries to the Secretary.
