The Royal Institute can offer up to £5,000 for a fully residential event lasting up to three days. However, we recognize that for both teachers and students in schools and colleges shorter events might be more appropriate and easier to arrange. For shorter events, we will be prepared to offer smaller amounts sufficient to cover travel expenses of speakers, hire of rooms, publicity materials, and other administrative costs on receipt of relevant costings. Food, travel and accommodation expenses may also be provided.
Departments interested in organizing events for teachers and students should contact James Garvey with a brief outline of what they are proposing to do, including speakers and topics to be covered, listing speakers who have agreed in principle to take part, as well as a proposed budget. This call will remain open until funding decisions have been made, so do apply early if you are interested.
Proposals for events in 2020-2021 are also welcome.
