CREST Funding for Underrepresented Audiences

The CREST Awards Scheme is a programme that aims to provide as many young people as possible (in particular those who are currently under-represented in STEM) the experience of behaving like a scientist or engineer by leading their own science/engineering projects to prompt them to see science as part of everyday life and consider it as a career.

CREST Underrepresented Audience Grants aim to broaden the reach of the CREST Awards and enable young people to gain a CREST Award who might face additional barriers to participation.  

How much can I apply for?

Applicants can request up to £600 total towards running CREST awards, this breaks down into two categories:

  • Up to £300 to cover CREST registration fees
  • Up to £300 to spend on support costs for running the Awards, such as CPD for school staff, supply teacher cover, CREST link schemes or a delivery partner, consumables or equipment.

Deadline for applications: 5pm, 14th October 2020.
Applications cannot be accepted after this date. 

Eligibility criteria:
• You are applying on behalf of a school or organisation to run CREST Awards in the United Kingdom
• Participating students will be aged 5-19 years
• Your Award(s) will be completed by 31 July 2021
