Applications are currently open and will close at 10am on 5 May 2017. 


ENTHUSE Partnerships

ENTHUSE Partnerships are groups of between four and eight schools and/or colleges located in England. These groups can apply for a grant of up to £12,000 and can use this money to work together to address local issues of underachievement in science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics (STEM) subjects. ENTHUSE Partnerships aim to support collaborative activities over two years to develop and strengthen local partnerships which can subsequently continue independently.

Applications are currently closed. If you would like to be made aware of the next time applications are open, please sign up to our monthly eNewsletter.
