Curiosity- BBC Children in Need and the Wellcome Trust funding opportunity


Curiosity is a brand new £2.5m partnership between BBC Children in Need and the Wellcome Trust which will use the power of exciting and engaging science activities to create change for children and young people experiencing disadvantage in the UK.

They  are inviting applications for grants of up to £10,000 to fund projects that engage children and young people in science based activities. This is not about formal education. Projects should encourage young people to be curious about the world around them and inside them, making a positive difference in their lives: building confidence and self-esteem, developing life skills and expanding horizons.

They do not have to be an expert in science, or even have delivered science activities before to participate, and they  encourage organisations who want to try something new to apply.

Successful applicants will receive support from the Curiosity team to help them deliver and learn from high quality science activity in an informal setting.

You will also be part of shaping the future of this exciting initiative as well as able to apply to further rounds of grant funding.

Explore these pages to find out more about Curiosity, what we expect and how you can apply.



Applications are open now, and will close at midnight on 22 September 2017.

 Grants will run from January 2018 to the end of September 2018.

They will be expect delivery to be completed by the end of the 2018 Summer holidays to give the best chance for learning to be collected and for you to engage in the second round of grant making.

In this first round of funding we anticipate that up to 20 grants will be awarded across the UK.

They will be online to answer your questions too. Head to the Curiosity Facebook Group and ask to become a member so you can receive updates and meet potential project partners.
