The Institute of Mathematics has announced that individuals working in Schools, Colleges of Further Education (FE) and Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) can apply for funding of up to £600 to run or attend an educational activity relating to mathematics.
Activities supported include:
- Hosting a mathematics event, e.g. Maths Trails, Maths Competitions;
- Attendance at appropriate conferences;
- Travel expenses to attend appropriate events;
- Supply cover required for the teacher to attend the appropriate event; etc.
Projects supported in the past include a grant towards the cost of running a Think Maths workshop for 90 Year 9 students.
Applications from primary schools are also welcome, but due to the aims of the Institute, primary schools should work in partnership with a secondary school, FE or HEI. Priority will be given to applications from members of the Institute. If the applicant is not a member of the Institute the name of a co-applicant who is a member must be given.
A decision on the award of a grant will usually be given within two months of the submission of an application. Applications can be submitted at any time.
