Royal Institution grant scheme for enriching maths teaching now open

The Royal Institution (Ri) is offering UK state schools, academies and colleges grants of up to £500 to host a maths enrichment and enhancement activity for their teachers and students.

Funded by the Clothworkers’ Foundation, the scheme is designed to integrate maths-related activities (such as shows, talks and workshops) into school practice and to support teachers’ professional development.

Successful applicants will receive £500 towards any maths-related activity listed on the STEM Directory­ as long as the activity takes place between January and July 2019.

This year, successful applicants will also have the opportunity to host a Royal Institution Science in Schools day at their school, fully funded by the Ri.

Eligible state-funded schools, academies and FE colleges must apply by Friday 12 October 2018.

You will hear whether you have been successful or not by Friday 26 October 2018.
