If you’re in need of funding for a STEM education project, consider applying for support from the IET and IMechE’s Engineering Education Grant Scheme.

This funding could get your project off the ground, meaning you help more people to learn about the possibilities of engineering and related STEM subjects.

These grants support UK-based projects that teach young people (aged 5-19) about engineering, or improve knowledge of engineering more widely. They also support projects that develop the skills of those supporting STEM learning and careers awareness.

Awards of up to £5,000 are available for standard applications to the scheme, and a small number of awards of up to £15,000 are available for projects that aim to have a bigger impact.

Are you eligible?

Any organisation or individual wanting to deliver UK-based educational activities can apply, including schools, science centres, Education Business Partnerships and IET/IMechE members. All projects must involve IET members or IMechE members in some way.

"As someone trying to make STEM engaging, inspirational and aspirational at an LEA funded school, the funding, support and resources provided through EEGS scheme and online resources are priceless in every way. The funding has helped us to engage with Ambassadors from the funders and STEM Learning, STEM professionals from industry and education, as well as providing much needed equipment, activities, visits and resources for young people ranging from Y6 to Y13. So far, the funding has impacted on 600 students and continues to excite and inspire still. As someone who has seen the benefit of the scheme I would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone. A massive thank you to the IET and IMechE." - Ges Cocker, Dover Grammar School for Girls

The deadline for applications is the 29 March for projects taking place from 1 June.
