Final Three Small Grant Awards

We are delighted to announce the final three awards for our small grants:

Edinburgh Skeptics on The Fringe

Edinburgh Skeptics in the Pub have been running a successful programme of events during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This grant of £1,000 will help support a range of potential ideas, from hosting events in larger venues to greater cross-promotion of science/rationalist events at The Fringe.

Camp Quest

Camp Quest UK provides a community where young people can be challenged and have fun with workshops in science and philosophy and a range of outdoor activities.

We are providing a grant of £1,000 to help with training for the mentors and expanding the reach of the event.

Adam Smith, in association with the Rationalist Association

This grant of £1,000 will provide seed funding for a new venture; the Rationalist’s Parliament. The aim is to experiment as to how the British Parliament could take a more rational approach to debating policy.

In addition to generating evidence-based research on current issues, commissioning opinion pieces from researchers and holding public debates, it is hoped that the Rationalists’ Parliament will show what skepticism in policy making may look like.
