Funding is available for UK-based educational projects that aim to increase engineering knowledge in young people aged 4-19. Jointly funded by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Engineering Education Grant Scheme is open to applications from any organisation capable of developing and delivering UK-based educational activities, including schools, youth clubs, museums, and FE colleges.
Two levels of funding are available for projects that aim to inspire young people to study science, technology, engineering and maths subjects or raise awareness of engineering and technology-based careers. Up to £5,000 is available for standard applications, and a small number of awards of up to £15,000 are available for projects that aim to make a bigger impact.
The Engineering Education Grant Scheme will re-open for applications from the 25th January until the 16th April 2021.
