We’re very excited that Scheherazade Speaks Science was awarded the University of Cambridge Public Engagement Starter Fund 2018!


We are delighted that we “scored very highly in the selection process, showing a great potential and value of our proposed engagement activity”, according to the selection panel. The award is very important to us and will be used to continue developing this platform for a continued and streamlined engagement with the public. The award will also power our efforts in promoting the visibility of female scientists and build a larger diverse community of role models.


We extend our deep gratitude for the support and guidance we received from the Public Engagement Team who we’ll be working with closely during the development, execution and future planning of our project.


The award highlights the efforts of our team and their dedication and passion in promoting science communication and gender equality. It marks new adventures, larger impact and a much bigger reach!
