The Royal Society Partnership grant scheme is currently open for applications. The aim of the fund is to make the teaching of science more interesting within primary and secondary schools.
Through the scheme grants of up to £3,000 are available for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) projects run at a primary or secondary school or college in partnership with a professional scientist or engineer. Any UK primary or secondary school teacher or practicing scientist/engineer can apply as long as the students involved in the project are between 5 and 18.
A partnership needs to be established before starting the application and the initial application must be started by the school partner as the primary applicant. The second partner should be an individual currently working in a STEM related profession, such as a researcher or analyst.
Additionally, there is an extension to the scheme called Tomorrow’s climate scientists. This extension will fund schools to research specifically into climate change and biodiversity issues. The application process for Tomorrow’s climate scientists is the same as for the main scheme.
