The Royal Institution has announced that its STEM Enrichment and Enhancement (E&E) grants scheme will re-open for applications on the 30th September 2020.
Grants of £500 will be made available to help integrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics activities into school practice and to support teachers’ professional development. The grants will be available to primary and secondary schools, sixth form and further education colleges in the UK for activities selected from the STEM Directory, which can range from shows and talks, to workshops and team-based challenges, that enrich the curriculum and often use resources that are not readily available to schools.
Teachers can apply for funding to cover fees, expenses, and travel expenses incurred by the school for activities which must be completed by the end of the 2021 summer term.
Priority will be given to schools in disadvantaged areas.
The closing date for applications will be the 23rd October 2020.
