Enriching Engagement Round 4 and Embedding Awards

Enriching Engagement is Oxford’s PER grants scheme for Wellcome-funded researchers. In June it has two funding rounds open in parallel: Round 4 of its regular scheme (for projects £10k-£100k), and a one-time special round, the Embedding Awards, for projects £150k- £300k. 

Round 4 opens on 17 June and closes 16 September; sign up for info sessions and application support workshops taking place June-July. Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for Embedding Awards are due 1 July; a funding panel on 19 July will assess them and invite a select few to proceed in developing full applications, which will be due on 16 September.  A key feature of Embedding Award projects is that they will work closely with an external partner(s). 

Closing date: Thursday 01 July (Embedding Award EOIs); Thursday 16 September (Round 4 applications and Embedding Award invited full applications).
