Partnership Grants

Partnership Grants of up to £3000 are available to UK schools and colleges to enable students aged 5 – 18 to carry out projects in all areas of science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM).

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).

Successful projects:

  • 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.

Case studies from our teachers
