Tomorrow's climate scientists

Tomorrow’s climate scientists is an extension to the Society's school funding programme Partnership Grants. Introduced in 2020, Tomorrow's climate scientists aims to give students across the UK not just a voice, but an opportunity to take action themselves to address climate and biodiversity issues – to become the climate scientists of tomorrow. Schools can apply for grants of up to £3,000 to run investigative STEM projects in partnership with STEM professionals from academia or industry. 

This scheme is open to applications

The 2022 funding round is now open for applications. Please note applications for the Tomorrow's climate scientists extension are completed through the main Partnership Grants application form on the online system Flexi-Grant®. The application round will remain open across the year with three possible submission deadlines at the end of April, June and November. A full timeline can be found here

To help teachers and STEM partners with the application, free online training sessions and drop in applicant support sessions are being run. You can find out more about these sessions and book through this Eventbrite page.
