Institute of Physics School Grants Scheme


The Science and Technology Facilities Council, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institute of Physics run a small grants scheme designed specifically for schools and colleges. The scheme provides schools with grants for projects or events linked to the teaching or promotion of physics or engineering.

Grants can be used to support a range of projects. Projects linked to astronomy, space and particle physics are particularly encouraged, as are those relating to engineering in areas such as energy, transport, information and communications, design and production and the built environment.
