All About STEM NEWS
CREST Funding for your School!
The CREST Awards Scheme is a programme that aims to provide as many young people as possible the experience of behaving like a scientist or engineer by leading their own STEM 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.
If registration and support costs are a barrier to running CREST, grants are now available to support and enable schools and organisations to run CREST Awards with young people underrepresented in STEM.
Grants are available twice each academic year (once in the Autumn Term and once in the Spring term). The 2022 Autumn grants are now open for application.
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 (you can find registration costs here)
- 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: Midnight 16th October 2022
As North West Regional CREST Support Organisation, All About STEM promote CREST Awards across the region and point schools & clubs to the support they need to run this amazing scheme. CREST Awards encourage students to work like scientists, researchers, engineers and designers to investigate and explore their own project ideas.« Back To News
