The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has announced that its Engineering Education Grant Scheme will open for applications on the 18th June 2018.
Schools and STEM organisations capable of developing and delivering UK-based educational activities that include IET or IMechE members in the project are eligible to apply. Applications from teams with diverse expertise, a range of skills and from a variety of sectors are particularly welcomed.
Grants will be awarded at two levels; up to £5,000 for standard applications and four larger grants of up to £15,000.
The deadline to apply is 8th October 2018 for projects taking place from 1 January 2019.
Projects funded in 2017 included Dismantle and Discover, led by Loughborough University and Loughborough Secondary School, involving student role models who set up an engaging after school club giving children the skills, enthusiasm and confidence to take up STEM subjects.
