Science Grant Scheme

SGS home page.jpg

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 2022-23 school year are:

Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon






Neath Port Talbot


South Ayrshire

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.
