Eligible Organisations

Schools, colleges and home school groups in the UK are all able to apply for this grant.

Suitable Projects

This grant is available for events, activities and projects that promote physics and engineering in young people and go beyond the school curriculum. The grant can be used to cover the cost of materials, marketing and publicity, transport, supply cover (circumstantial) and other appropriate purposes as decided by the judges. Proposals that demonstrate high levels of cost-effectiveness are welcomed.

Applicants are advised that if applying to fund a bought-in show, their applications will be stronger if they integrate this into a wider project. Additionally, applicants are particularly encouraged to submit applications for projects that cover these particular topics: particle physics, transport, space and nuclear physics, energy, design and promotion, built environment, astronomy, or information and communications.

Application Process

Applications can be made through the Institute of Physics platform. Applicants should allow up to five weeks after the closing date for a decision on their project.

Important Dates

The upcoming deadline is 1st November.

Funding Range

Grants of up to £600 are available. Normally, projects that require the grant to contribute to a small proportion of the overall project will not be funded.
