Holmes Hines Memorial Fund - EPSRC website

EPSRC does not contribute to the fund. It is entirely supported by a charitable bequest. Examples of awards made during 2012-13 include: Support for Summer Science CampsContributions towards the running of Schools' Science WeeksSupport for Science and Engineering Lunchtime and After School ClubsA contribution to Science in the ParkSupport for Schools' Science ConferenceA contribution to Lego Mindstorms Science Club Background The Holmes Hines Memorial Fund is a registered charity, number 284529, administered at EPSRC by a trust.

How to apply There is no formal application form, and your completed application can be emailed or posted to the fund administrator. If you are applying for funding to hold an event during Science Week, the closing date is 31 December. Further information about the fund and what is required from applicants. Mercers.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with our Grants & Events Officer, Amy Everard Ecology Objectives All objectives must be aimed at a non-academic audience and all projects must provide a clear demonstration of direct interaction with the public. Home - Science and Technology Facilities Council. Engineering education grant scheme. The Engineering Education Grant Scheme provides support for UK-based educational projects that aim to increase engineering knowledge in young people aged 5 - 19.

Engineering education grant scheme

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) have merged their educational grant schemes to produce greater coherence in their funding for formal and informal learning support. This combined scheme is designed to streamline the application process, promote partnership working and strengthen how successful interventions are measured. The Engineering Education Grant Scheme (EEGS) aims to engage young people aged 5-19 in learning about engineering and to develop the professional skills of those involved in supporting STEM learning and careers awareness.

The EEGS also supports projects that improve wider engineering literacy. There are two levels of funding available. Projects funded by the scheme Autumn 2016 funding round Decisions will be announced w/c 5 December 2016. Outreach fund. How should I submit my application?

Outreach fund

Applications should be submitted via our online system. Educational Grants Scheme. The RSC Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) has been providing funds for small educational projects in schools and colleges for many years.

Educational Grants Scheme

The unifying theme of all of these projects has been their common objective of enhancing the learning (and teaching) experience in relation to chemistry for students (and teachers). Since 2007 we have had nearly 100 applications for funds, most of which the BMCS has taken pleasure in supporting. During this period we have offered support in two main areas: Enhanced Equipment and Chemistry Clubs. Scientific Outreach Grants. The Society wishes to support scientific outreach activities that communicate the excitement of molecular bioscience to young people and the community.

Scientific Outreach Grants

Applications are invited for sums up to £1000 to assist with the direct costs associated with an event and expenses incurred (e.g. transport and/or teacher cover). The Biochemical Society must be acknowledged at the event and in the resources produced. Copies of all materials generated should be submitted to the Society to disseminate to others where appropriate. A short report of the activity and an evaluation is a condition of the grant. Applicants will not be eligible to apply for future Scientific Outreach Grants until a report and evaluation is complete. There are two round of applications per year, in September and April. The September 2015 Scientific Outreach Grant awardees have been announced. School Grants Scheme. The Science and Technology Facilities Council (formerly PPARC and CCLRC), the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institute of Physics run a small grants scheme designed specifically for schools and colleges.

School Grants Scheme

The scheme provides schools with grants of up to £600 for projects or events linked to the teaching or promotion of physics or engineering. Eligibility and timingThe scheme is open to all UK educational institutions (schools and colleges) catering for pupils/students in the age range 5-19. There are three deadlines per year: Grants can be used to support a range of projects. Projects linked to astronomy, space and particle physics are particularly encouraged, as are those relating to engineering in areas such as energy, transport, information and communications, design and production and the built environment. How do I apply? Please note: the scheme is extremely competitive; last year we funded 55% of the applications we received. Partnership Grants. Since it started in November 2000, the Partnership Grants scheme has awarded over £1.3 million to over 800 schools and colleges, igniting enthusiasm for STEM in thousands of young people across the UK.

Since 2010, 88% of awarded Partnership Grants partners reported that they would apply again. Grant scheme for enriching mathematics teaching in schools now open. Heritage Lottery Fund. Grants from £10,000 to £50,000 Apply for a grant of £10,000-£50,000 to help young people aged 11 to 25 to explore their heritage, from green spaces, museums, and historic sites to language, local memories and youth culture.
