10th Anniversary Funding Appeal

The Society celebrates its 10th birthday in May 2020. To build on our successes and support younger generations, we've launched a Fundraising Appeal.

As we help address the challenges that face Wales and the world – especially in combating the Covid-19 crisis and securing a better future for us all – Wales will depend greatly on research and scholarship and the achievements of future generations. We therefore need to inspire excellence amongst young people and those starting their careers in research.

We’re raising funds for two priority activities:

Supporting Early Career Researchers

We want to support researchers across Wales to share their work, collaborate and develop skills.

Inspiring Young People in our Schools

We want to help school pupils in Wales follow their own ‘paths to excellence’ in learning.
