An important component of the Partnership Grant project is its evaluation. We ask that reports are sent to us within two months of the project’s completion.
By gaining feedback from the pupils involved – and also other members of the community where appropriate – you can find out whether the project was a success, which parts worked best, and how it might be improved. The evaluation could take the form of a questionnaire, a discussion group, a written or artistic exercise – be creative!
A condition of the Partnership Grant award is that recipients submit a report to the Royal Society within 2 months of completing the project. This report must contain a summary of the project, including an expenditure report, the results of the evaluation, and any supporting material such as photographs, website materials or articles in the local press. We may use this information to construct a case study of your project for promotion on our website.
It is also a condition of the Partnership Grant award that both the teacher and scientist or engineer fill out a survey of their experiences of the project once it is completed. This is submitted via an online evaluation, and a link to the site will be emailed on completion of the project. Your responses will provide us with essential information to aid in the future development of the Partnership Grants scheme.
The evaluation report should be a summary of the outcomes of the project, including whether it achieved its aims. The reports are used to help inform other people who are seeking to carry out similar projects - so please be honest and include any problems you encountered as well as the ways in which you found it enjoyable.
Please submit the final report within two months of the completion of the project. No further applications for funding will be considered by us until we have received this report, and the online evaluation has been completed by both partners.
The Partnership Grants scheme is now closed for applications. The next round of applications will be in the autumn.
There are two application rounds per year, one in Spring and one in Autumn.
You can apply through our online portal (this link will be live once the scheme opens for applications).
You can send us your draft application for comments up to one week before the closing date. See the Application guidelines for more details.
When the project is finished, you are expected to evaluate its impact. You might also consider ways to build on the project in the future.
