Grants to enhance your teaching of science, technology, engineering and maths.
Grants of £500 are offered for schools to experience a maths activity selected from the STEM Directory. This scheme is generously supported by the Clothworkers’ Foundation.
The deadline for our 2018 grant scheme closed in October 2018. Please sign up to our education newsletter; we will announce the opening of our next grant scheme, which is likely to open in September 2019.
The Royal Institution’s STEM E&E grants are designed to help integrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics activities into school practice and to support teachers’ professional development. Activities enrich or go beyond the curriculum and often use resources that are not readily available to schools. Activities can range from shows and talks to workshops and team-based challenges.
Teachers can apply for a STEM E&E grant of up to £500. They must select their activity from the STEM Directory.
Grants are awarded on a yearly or twice-yearly basis. Sign up to the Ri’s education newsletter to hear first when a scheme opens.
The STEM Directory is an easy way to find enhancement and enrichment opportunities to support STEM teaching. Some schemes bring exciting activities into schools or colleges; others can provide a memorable day out for students or a nationwide competition to help motivate a STEM club.
The STEM Directory is run by STEM Learning. STEM Learning is the largest provider of STEM education and careers support to schools, colleges and other groups working with young people across the UK. They offer an extensive library of online of STEM teaching resources, provide CPD opportunities for teachers and manage the nationwide STEM Ambassador scheme.
