Who We Help

The Edina Trust provides non-competitive, easy-to-access grants, for state primary schools in certain regions of the UK, to be used to promote the teaching of science and gardening.
The Edina Trust is currently operating Science Grant Schemes in Dundee City, Hartlepool, Inverclyde, Lancashire (LEA), Merthyr Tydfil, Middlesbrough, North Ayrshire, North Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, Rhondda Cynon Taff, South Lanarkshire and Sunderland.


What We Do


The Grant Schemes:

Science Grant Scheme

We understand the frustrations of endless forms and complicated applications, especially for teachers, and so aim to provide a quick and simple application process, with the minimum amount of paperwork! This allows teachers the freedom to do what they want and to focus on the important thing: providing real opportunities and experiences for the children to understand the value of, and take part in, investigative science.
(For tips on filling out our application form click here).

There are many ways to inspire pupils and make the curriculum more adventurous - what you choose to do is up to you.
Projects can include:

Resources for Teachers

To help with ideas for projects, as well as information on what other teachers have planned and achieved:

Teacher's feedback on the science grant scheme...
"This is a truly wonderful scheme and we feel very privileged to be part of it"
"An excellent and helpful scheme which directly improves teaching and learning for children across all stages in the school"
"We could not have done this without the substantial funding recieved from the Edina Trust"
"The scheme is set up in a way which enabled all learners in our school and nursery community to benefit from the resources purchased, thank you!"
"Unlike other grant applications I have been involved with which were cumbersome, I was able to direct my time and effort towards the project which ultimately was of more benefit to the children."
"The scheme has been my main source of science resources for this year and has had the greatest impact on science in years."
