Science Grant Scheme

Our Grants

Main Grant

for "full" Primary Schools and SEN Schools

£600 per year towards a science project. This adds up to £1,800 over the three-year scheme.

Half Grants

for Infant and Junior Schools

£300 per year towards a science project. This adds up to £900 over the three-year scheme.

One-Off Grant

for Maintained Nurseries

One-off £420 grant at any point during the three year scheme. This includes stand-alone nursery schools and nursery classes within schools.

We understand the frustrations of endless forms and complicated applications and so aim to provide a quick and simple application process, with the minimum amount of paperwork! 

The Edina Trust Science Grant Scheme (SGS) is a non-competitive grant scheme. Funding is set aside so that there is enough for every school and maintained nursery in select areas to get the full amount.

The eligible areas for the 2019-20 school year are:

Blaenau Gwent



Fermanagh & Omagh


Newry, Mourne & Down

North East Lincolnshire


West Lothian


The SGS runs in each area for three years. You can find out which year your area is in by visiting our eligible schools page.
