(Updated 10 Aug 2022) The Research Enrichment – Public Engagement funding scheme supports Wellcome grant holders who want to use public insights to develop their research. Engagement helps to build the public's trust in research, and ensure research is valued within society.

Funding of between £10,000 and £250,000

Funds can be used for a range of costs such as:
Dedicated salary posts, where justified
Other personnel costs directly related to the programme, including salary replacement or cover, eg teaching staff
Consultancy costs and project management fees
Direct activity and production costs, including venue costs, equipment and materials
Relevant public engagement training and development for you and any staff employed on your grant
Evaluation, including formative/development costs
Administration costs that are not already covered by other funding
Marketing and publicity costs for events and activities
Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks
Contingency costs, as long as these are reasonable and you can justify them

Funding will end at the same time as your main Wellcome grant.

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
