Life in this world produces an ever-increasing range of challenges, whether Covid-19, the climate emergency , medical ethics or finding meaning and purpose. Science and Faith both give us ways to understand and respond to these challenges, especially when they work together.

For those unable to afford a regular or student ticket, a limited number of Faraday Scholarships and Bursaries are available. Applicants should register and apply as detailed below (DO NOT apply through the main registration page if applying for a scholarship or bursary):
