State-funded primary schools, nurseries and special schools in Sandwell can apply for grants from the Edina Trust to run science projects. The level of funding available is dependent upon the type of school applying:
- Full primary and special schools can apply for grants of up to £600 per year for up to three years.
- Infant and junior schools up to £300 per year for up to three years.
- Maintained Nursery schools and nursery classes within schools can apply for a one-off grant of up to £420.
The Science Grant Scheme runs in the area for three years. 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.
Grants can be used for science weeks, science related school trips, science equipment and science subscriptions; improving school grounds for science and gardening resources.
There are no deadlines and applications can be submitted at any time.
