Wellcome Trust International Engagement Awards
London, UK

Scholarship / Financial aid: a grant of up to £30,000

Date: 3 years

Deadline: 21st August 2014

Open to: scientists, health researchers, NGOs, educators, artists, theatre practitioners

Announcement follows

The International Engagement Awards support public engagement projects and work that builds capacity for engagement with biomedical research in Sub-Saharan Africa, South-east Asia and South Asia.

The scheme aims to:

+stimulate dialogue about biomedical research and its impact on the public in a range of community and public contexts
+promote innovative partnerships between community organisations and the cultural sector, and scientists/researchers
+strengthen capacity to conduct public engagement with biomedical science and health research


The scheme is open to a wide range of people and organisations including scientists, health researchers, NGOs, educators, artists, theatre practitioners and cultural or community organisations.

If your project is not led by a scientist, health researcher or research institution, you must have biomedical scientific input into the project by working in partnership with an expert in the area of biomedical science you are exploring. Similarly, we also strongly encourage scientist-led projects to be planned in collaboration with partners in civil society or the creative industries.

Please read about a Vietnamese project supported through the scheme, ‘Doi Moi’ [PDF 179KB], which aimed to bring science to the forefront of people’s minds in an engaging and entertaining way through theatre productions, lively debate and informed writing.

You may also be inspired by the Art in Global Health projects that supported artist residencies in six research centres across the world to look at personal, philosophical, cultural and political dimensions of health research.


The audience for the project, and the engagement activity, must be in a low- or middle-income country within Sub-Saharan Africa, South-east Asia or South Asia that is also eligible for our Investigator Awards within the broader remit of the Trust (but also including India). These are the countries that marked with an asterisk on our LMIC country eligibility page.

If you are a Wellcome Trust-funded researcher outside of these regions, please contact us to discuss your engagement plans.

Projects that are not eligible for International Engagement Awards include health promotion or public health campaign projects, research projects, or projects that do not deal with biomedical sciences or the history of medicine.

To be eligible, you must be either:

+a biomedical scientist or health researcher
+or collaborating with a researcher, research group or institution to provide expertise in the area of biomedical science you are exploring

To apply for a grant of up to £30,000 for up to three years
, please complete an expression of interest [Word] and email it here. We will reply to your email with information about the project’s suitability for the scheme and invite a full application if applicable.

We encourage you to contact us as early as possible before the deadline so we are able to provide feedback and there is sufficient time for you to complete the full application form.

All eligible projects will be peer-reviewed and assessed individually on merit and need by a funding committee. Final decisions will be made approximately three months after the full application deadline.

The upcoming full application deadline for the International Engagement Awards is:

4th September 2014

Please submit your expression of interest as early as possible. The final deadline is 21st August.
