Dudgeon Community Fund
The Dudgeon Community Fund STEM Programme is now OPEN for outline proposals. The deadline for completed proposals is Friday 3 November at 5pm.
The Dudgeon Community Fund STEM Programme aims to increase motivation and competence within Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects for pupils aged 12-16 years so that those pupils are more likely to enter post 16 education or employment within the STEM areas. The Fund aims to kick-start projects which can demonstrate that they will make a sustained difference to the target group. The Fund will not cover costs associated with normal delivery of the curriculum e.g. existing teacher salaries or building maintenance. Potential applicants can read more about the fund here: Dudgeon STEM Programme Fact Sheet
Who can apply?
Non-fee paying schools plus charities, constituted community groups and other not for profit organisations that are accustomed to working with this age group. All applications must be for a STEM initiative which will be delivered to pupils in school years 8-11 in education in the Great Yarmouth, Breckland or North Norfolk districts. All applicants that are not schools should read our FAQs to ensure they meet Norfolk Community Foundation’s standard eligibility requirements before starting an application.
How much funding is available?
In the first year of the programme £150,000 will be available. Thereafter £100,000 be available each year for the duration of the programme.
