Cormack Astronomy Outreach Grants

Cormack Astronomy Outreach Grants

Small Outreach Grants

Small Outreach Grants for individuals or groups to develop public understanding of science activities in Scotland in the field of Astronomy are available through the Robert Cormack Bequest Committee.

This scheme is intended to help set up new projects, or to add new elements to existing ones, rather than to fund ongoing activities. Up to £1,000 (in total) is available each year for these projects.

Funded projects must benefit a wider audience (e.g. public visitors, whole school) rather than the recipients of the funds (e.g. Astronomical Society, School Class or Club).

Applications for this scheme are currently open and will close on Friday 21 October at 5pm.

Application Guidance

We are trialling a new system and all applicants are asked to register for an account at before submitting their application. Once an account has been created, prospective applicants should tick the box next to the award they are applying for in the "Apply for Funding" section of their account.
