Funding Available for Projects that Engage Young People in Engineering – 6th April 2018 (UK)

The Engineering Education Grant Scheme provides support for UK-based educational projects that aim to increase engineering knowledge in young people aged 5 – 19.

The Engineering Education Grant Scheme (EEGS) aims to engage young people aged 5-19 in learning about engineering and to develop the professional skills of those involved in supporting STEM learning and careers awareness. The EEGS also supports projects that improve wider engineering literacy.

Any organisation capable of developing and delivering UK-based educational activities is eligible to apply, including schools, IET or IMechE members and STEM organisations. They are particularly keen to receive applications for projects from teams with diverse expertise, a range of skills and from a variety of sectors, and projects must involve IET or IMechE members.

There are two levels of funding available. Awards of up to £5000 (inclusive of any applicable VAT) are available for standard applications to the fund, and up-to-four awards of £15,000 are available each year.

The closing date for applications is the 6th April 2018.
