What’s Your Big Idea?! is a small grants fund for young people in Scotland supported by the Audrey Milan Fund.

Young people can apply for a small amount of funding to help get an exciting idea off the ground. They can apply for help starting a new project with your youth group; use it for a cool idea they've been thinking about to make more money; develop a new skill, like making jewellery, starting a podcast or learning to cook; or something completely different.

Young people are welcome to apply with individual or group ideas and applications can be submitted through a Youth Scotland member group.
