Education Endowment Foundation To Launch New Funding Round (England)

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), which seeks to improve the educational attainment of disadvantaged pupils, is expected to launch a new funding round to improve educational outcomes for 3-18 year olds in late July.

Previous funding rounds have focused on:

  • Maths outcomes Key Stage 2/3
  • Projects that aim to develop a set of attitudes, skills and behaviours that are thought to underpin success in school and work, such as self-control, social skills, motivation, and resilience’
  • Science programmes across both primary and secondary schools.

The Foundation does not fund projects in one or very small numbers of schools/settings. Their smallest projects have been in 3-4 schools, but are typically in more than 50, and often over 80, institutions. To be eligible the applicant must be a not-for-profit organisation, such as a school, charity, social enterprise, local authority or university; etc. The Foundation does not have a set minimum or maximum size of grant. Past EEF grants have ranged from £90,000 to £1.5million.
