Funding to Support Education in Disadvantaged Areas – 19th August 2019 (UK / International)

Grants are available to support schools and registered charities that wish to undertake educational work with children and young people in disadvantaged areas.

The British & Foreign Schools Society (BFSS) normally makes grants for educational projects totaling about £600,000 in any one year. The majority (85% of grants) are made to charities and educational bodies (with charitable status). Schools wishing to apply need to have either charitable status or “exempt charity” status.

Previous projects supported include:

Teens and Toddlers, a charity based in Southwark London received a grant of £19,500 towards the cost of two 18-week youth development programmes to help raise the aspirations of at risk young people.

The Afghan Association Paiwand received a grant of £33,240 for a new Saturday school in the deprived area of Colindale, North London which focus on maths and English in partnership with local authorities and mainstream schools.

The Sensory Trust received a grant of £3,000 for a project aimed at developing sensory nature tools for schools aimed at students with learning disabilities

The next closing date for applications is the 19th August 2019. For further information on the types of grants awarded by BFSS both in the UK and internationally, please click here

Applications will be considered from educational or training institutions which have UK charitable status or, in the case of schools, colleges, universities and Churches, “exempt charity” status.

The Society also offers a small number of grants for organisations and individuals through its Subsidiary Trusts.  Eligibility criteria depend on area of residence and/or particular field of educational activity.
