Science Grant Scheme

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 eligible areas to get the full amount.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Schools can use their grants for science resources, gardening equipment, science weeks, science subscriptions, science visits (in or out of school) and improving school grounds for science. 

The eligible areas for the 2020-21 school year are:

Bridgend

Fermanagh & Omagh

Hull

Knowsley

Neath Port Talbot

Newry, Mourne & Down

Sandwell

South Ayrshire

Wakefield

West Lothian

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

Due to Covid-19  restrictions the Trust is not currently accepting applications for science visits in or out of school.All other categories of application are encouraged and welcomed!
