Science Grant Scheme


The Edina Trust offers £700 primary school science grants and £500 nursery science grants. Find out how to access your school science funding.


It’s quick and easy to access as our grants are
non-competitive, meaning funding is guaranteed if your school is located within one of our current areas.


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. See the 'How to Use the Grant' page for further information.

Grants are available in a local authority area for three years, after which we move on to new areas. See our FAQs for more information.

How to Access Your Funding

1. Choose your local authority area from our current eligible areas below.

2. Download a grant form.

3. Fill out the form and send it to the email at the end of the form.

4. We will be in touch to let you know when your grant is paid, or if we need to    check any details with you first.

5. It is up to the school to purchase items/book a visit with the grant.

The Edina Trust has created a range of pre-populated forms with themed equipment lists which schools and nurseries may wish to use. Alternatively, schools and nurseries may wish to create their own equipment list. The Edina Trust, although not able to assess product safety, seeks to ensure that all items in its pre-populated grant forms are from suppliers with a proven track record in supplying safe and reliable equipment to schools and nurseries. However, individual schools and nurseries will have their own local H&S policies and individual circumstances, and are responsible for carrying out their own risk assessments before selecting and using Edina Trust funded science equipment with their pupils. The Trust accepts no liability for any loss, damage or injury arising from the use of equipment or products purchased with its grants.

The deadline to submit your form is 14th June 2024. 

However, we recommend accessing your funding today, so you can get your new science resources in school as soon as possible.
