STEMPOINT Grant

STEMPOINT Grant scheme

We offer funding of up to £500 to fuel your vision. Our commitment extends to embracing diverse projects rooted in the East of England, provided they contribute to the advancement of STEM-related activities.

It is with this commitment for STEM enthusiasm that we proudly offer the STEMPOINT Grant scheme for the third consecutive year.

Over the past 2 years, we have collaborated with more than 20 educational institutions across the East of England, supporting them in the development of innovative STEM projects, creating inspiring garden spaces, and the exhilarating staging of robot competitions. These efforts have collectively impacted over 5,000 young minds, who have embraced the wonders of STEM.

Apply for STEMPOINT Grant

Registrations for 2024 are now closed – please keep an eye on our socials for new dates.

As an educational charity we understand the challenges faced by educational institutions, from schools and colleges to youth groups, in igniting the flames of curiosity and passion for STEM subjects among their students.  We know that schools, colleges and youth groups sometimes need a bit of financial help to get pupils inspired about STEM.

That’s why we’ve introduced our small grant scheme to help projects and initiatives get off the ground or for them to continue successfully.  We will consider any project based in the East of England (Beds, Cambs, Essex, Herts, Norfolk & Suffolk) that helps finance STEM-related activities.

This could be materials/resources, kits for a STEM Club, CREST or other STEM awards for young people aged 5 - 18.   

In addition, your project should access STEM Ambassadors. If you’re a teacher, Career Lead, support staff or run a Youth Group (such as Brownies, Cubs, Guides or Scouts) and you’d like a financial boost to buy STEM equipment or pay for Awards, then you can apply for up to £500 in funding from us (see Terms & Conditions).

What you can get

Whether it involves acquiring materials, assembling kits for a thriving STEM Club, pursuing CREST accreditation, or other STEM accolades tailored for young individuals aged 5 to 18, your project will be considered for funding.  You will have the opportunity to secure a financial catalyst of up to £500, empowering you to procure essential STEM equipment or embark on the creation of your very own stimulating STEM project.

You’ll need to give us estimated costs of your project, details of any other funding you receive (if any) and provide feedback and evaluation of the project, including pictures.
