Funding for School Climate Biodiversity Projects UK

This funding is made available through The Royal Society’s Tomorrow’s Climate Scientists Programme. Introduced in 2020, Tomorrow’s Climate Scientists aims to give students across the UK not just a voice, but an opportunity to take action themselves to address climate and biodiversity issues – to become the climate scientists of tomorrow.

Schools can apply for grants of up to £3,000 to run investigative STEM projects in partnership with STEM professionals from academia or industry.

To be eligible for these grants, schools must have two project partners. The lead applicant should be a school, and the second partner should be a STEM professional from academia or industry. The primary purpose of the funding is to facilitate the purchase of necessary equipment for these projects.

The Partnership Grants scheme operates on an annual basis and follows a two-stage application process. The application window typically opens in February each year, with three possible submission deadlines throughout the year.

The next deadline for both stage 1 and stage 2 applications is scheduled for the end of April 2024.

Why apply for this scheme?
  • A chance for students to have a voice in the direction of scientific research by working with their STEM partner.
  • Supports students to develop green skills as the UK moves towards a net zero future.
  • Additional opportunities for schools, including producing short films about their projects and sharing their work with the media.
