Darwin Tree of Life Enabling Funds


The Darwin Tree of Life has two public engagement funds open to anyone working within the Darwin Tree of Life consortium. Applications should have Darwin Tree of Life science at their centre, and build relationships with people outside our consortium to exchange knowledge, skills, inspiration and ideas.

The two funding pots are:

Enabling Community Fund for small to medium sized projects involving one or more community partners from outside our consortium. Apply now

Enabling Connections Fund for small, medium or large projects involving two or more Darwin Tree of Life consortium partners. This fund can be used to create new activities or to expand currently funded projects to include additional partners. Apply now

Each fund has a different focus so if you are unsure which to apply to, or you want to talk about your idea before making an application, then please email the Darwin Tree of Life’s friendly public engagement coordinator, Jack Monaghan (jm58@sanger.ac.uk).

Funding should be spent on activities based in the UK, and the Republic of Ireland, that happen before the end of January 2023. Applicants must work or study at one of the Darwin Tree of Life consortium partners.
