Royal Society Partnership Grants Scheme: Apply Now!
The Royal Society Partnership Grants scheme, offering up to £3000 to fund school STEM projects, is now open for applications until 31 July 2015.
Partnership Grants of up to £3000 are available to schools to enable students, aged 5 – 18, to carry out science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) projects.
Projects needs to be investigative and supported by teachers and STEM professionals (research or industry) working in partnership. They should:
– Deliver a better understanding of the latest developments in STEM;
– Improve perceptions of those working in STEM professions;
– Give students pride and ownership in STEM from participation in the investigative process.
Since it started in November 2000, the scheme has awarded over £1.3 million to over 770 schools and colleges, igniting enthusiasm for STEM in thousands of young people across the UK.
Since 2010, 88% of awarded Partnership Grants Partners reported that they would apply again.
