Up to £15,000 funding for your STEM project!
If you’re in need of funding for an education project, consider applying for support from the IET and IMechE’s Engineering Education Grant Scheme (EEGS).
The funding could get your project off the ground, pushing your pupils to achieve more in STEM subjects and even progress to related higher education and careers.
They offer grants to support UK-based projects that teach young people (aged 5-19) about engineering, or improve knowledge of engineering more widely. They also support projects that develop the skills of those supporting STEM learning and careers awareness. Awards of up to £5,000 are available for standard applications to the scheme, and a small number of awards of up to £15,000 are available for projects that aim to have a bigger impact.
Are you eligible?
Any organisation or individual wanting to deliver UK-based educational activities can apply, including schools and IET or IMechE members. They are especially keen to receive applications from partnerships, representing a range of expertise and skills from different sectors. All projects must involve IET members or IMechE members in some way.
Don’t delay…The next deadline for applications is the 29 March for projects taking place from 1 June.
