Royal Society announces new funding for schools and colleges

The Royal Society has announced that its 2019 round of Partnership Grants is now open.

Since it started in November 2000, the Partnership Grants scheme has awarded over £1.3 million to over 800 schools and colleges, igniting enthusiasm for STEM in thousands of young people across the UK.

Partnership Grants of up to £3,000 are available to schools and colleges to enable 5-18-year-olds to carry out science, technology, engineering or mathematics projects. The Royal Society is also looking to support projects on computing and data science.

The grants can be used to buy equipment or run a STEM investigation project in partnership with a STEM professional (research or industry). 

The application process is a two-stage process, and stage 1 will close at the end of February 2019.
