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.

The 2015 Summer round of applications are open until 31 July. Visit the Partnership Grants webpages or contact the Royal Society education outreach team for more information.
