The grants allow schools or colleges to buy equipment to run a STEM investigation project in partnership with a STEM professional (who is currently working in a STEM related profession, such as a researcher or analyst from academia or industry).
- Deliver a better understanding of the latest developments in STEM
- Improve perceptions of those working in STEM professions
- Give students pride and ownership in STEM from participation in the investigative process
Further guidance on the Partnership Grants is available regarding how to create a partnership with a STEM professional and how the application process works.
