Funding for STEM Enrichment and Enhancement Activities in Schools (UK)

The Royal Institution (Ri) is offering UK state schools grants to host STEM Enrichment and Enhancement activity for their teachers and students. Funded by the Clothworkers’ Foundation, the scheme is designed to help integrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics activities into school practice and to support teachers’ professional development. Activities enrich or go beyond the curriculum and often use resources that are not readily available to schools. Activities can range from shows and talks to workshops and team-based challenges.

Successful applicants will receive £500 towards any STEM-related activity listed on the STEM Directory https://www.stem.org.uk/enrichment/stem-directory as long as the activity takes place between January and July 2019.

In order to apply for a grant, applicants need to:

  • Be from a state-funded primary or secondary school/academy, sixth-form or FE college in the UK
  • Be a member of the school staff who is involved in teaching a STEM subject in the school

The closing date for applications is at midnight on the 4th November 2019.
