Bring research alive with the Royal Society’s Partnership Grants

The Royal Society are offering schools the opportunity to apply for one of their Partnership Grants. This scheme offers up to £3,000 to UK schools or colleges to give pupils aged 5-18 the chance to get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) projects.

The grant can be used to buy the equipment needed to run a STEM investigation project in partnership with a STEM professional. 

Who can apply?

Applications can be made jointly between two project partners. The two partners are:

  • school partner – any teacher or support staff at the school
  • STEM partner – an individual that is currently working in a STEM related profession

Why apply for this scheme?

The Partnership Grants deliver a better understanding of the latest developments in STEM. This scheme can also benefit your school or college by allowing you to change the perceptions of those working in STEM professions.

This scheme will reopen for applications on 30 May 2016 and will close on 1 August 2016.
