You have until 21 February 2014 to apply for an Engagement Fellowship, which provides the freedom, resources and environment to enable exceptional people to develop their skills and practice in encouraging the public to examine, explore and debate the big scientific challenges that society faces.
The Engagement Fellowships scheme champions the public engagement leaders of tomorrow by fostering the most promising developing talent. We are looking for individuals with a strong track record of engaging the public with ideas around biomedical science and/or medical humanities, who want to make a step-change in their careers.
We have already funded seven exceptional individuals under this scheme:

Roger Kneebone, Professor of Surgical Education at Imperial College London
Erinma Ochu at the Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Manchester
Lavinia Greenlaw, award-winning Poet and previously the Science Museum's first artist-in-residence
Alasdair Hopwood, Artist and Creator of the WITH Collective
Greg Foot, an experienced Science Communicator and Presenter.
Applicants should have at least three years' experience (full- or part-time) engaging the public with science and must be based in the UK or the Republic of Ireland.
