The SAS Public Engagement Fund offers small grants to facilitate public engagement with research activities within the School of Advanced Study (SAS), and with collections and archives in the Senate House Library (SHL). The scheme is intended to offer opportunities for researchers and other eligible staff and students at SAS/SHL to engage with non-academic audiences in developing and demonstrating their research. The scheme offers grants of up to £1,500 for engagement activities.

Funded projects can take place throughout the year. However, applicants are encouraged to consider timing their initiatives to coincide with the Bloomsbury Festival (16–25 October 2020) or the Being Human festival of the humanities (12–22 November 2020).
