We’re proud to make a very special announcement to schools, colleges and youth groups….


As an educational charity that has been around for more than 35 years, we know that schools, colleges and youth groups sometimes need a bit of financial help to get pupils inspired about STEM.  That’s why we’re introducing a small grant scheme to help projects and initiatives get off the ground or for them to continue successfully.

If you’re a teacher, Career Lead, support staff or run a Youth Group (such as Brownies, Cubs, Guides or Scouts) and you’d like a financial boost to buy STEM equipment or pay for Awards, then you can apply for up to £500 in funding from us.

We want to make the process as simple as possible, so all you need to do is read the Terms & Conditions and complete the application form by Monday, 29th November 2021. Please see both links below.

We will consider any project based in the East of England*, that helps finance STEM-related activities.  This could be materials, kits for a STEM Club, CREST or other STEM awards for young people aged 5 – 18.  If possible, we’d like you to access STEM Ambassadors as part of your initiative too, so don’t forget to say how you will use STEM Ambassador support to ensure your project is a success. 

You’ll need to give us estimated costs of your project, details of any other funding you receive (if any) and provide feedback and evaluation of the project, which needs to be completed before the end of July 2022.

We have a total fund of £5,000 for this cycle of grants.  All proposals will be reviewed after the closing date of 29th November 2021 and we will notify you of the outcome by early January 2022.
