The Edina Trust provides non-competitive, easy-to-access grants, for state primary schools in certain regions of the UK, to be used to promote the teaching of science and gardening. Grants are available to primary schools to fund a science project.

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.

This is 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.
