Grants of up to £10,000 are available to schools and other eligible organisations to deliver projects designed to engage students in STEM subjects.
The Dudgeon STEM in Schools Fund aims to inspire pupils and students in primary/secondary schools and colleges (up to and including year 13) to study Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects, so that those pupils are more likely to continue education or employment within the STEM areas.
The Fund supports creative projects which can demonstrate that they will make a sustained difference to pupils and students. We would like to see a range of projects which seek to engage underrepresented groups in STEM and the continued support of student’s activities which have proven successful.
All applications must be for a STEM initiative which will be delivered to pupils in primary schools, secondary schools, or colleges in the Great Yarmouth, Breckland or North Norfolk districts. Collaboration on projects with other schools and colleges is strongly encouraged.
