Applications to Open for Funding Towards School Trips to CERN (UK)
The Ogden Trust provides grants to secondary schools that are or have been members of its School Partnerships programme, aimed at covering expenses for trips to CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research. This initiative seeks to enable disadvantaged students to experience one of the world's foremost centers for scientific research.

To be eligible for funding, students must be eligible for pupil premium, the 16-19 bursary, or be a scholarship pupil at an independent school.

The Trust offers grants of up to £2,500 to support trips that give students the opportunity to learn about the physics research that is taking place at CERN, as well as meeting some of the physicists who work there.

The average grant per application awarded in 2022-23 was £1,352.

Previous members of the scheme can also apply.

The next application window will be from 29th April to 14th June 2024.
