Digital Xtra Fund
The core objective of Digital Xtra Fund is to inspire young people to learn advanced digital technologies skills through high quality, exciting extracurricular activities, thus expanding the talent pipeline of young people who might study related disciplines and ultimately pursue a career in digital technologies.
Applications are sought for initiatives which tangibly demonstrate exciting and stimulating ways of engaging young people. Applicants must clearly demonstrate how participants will be involved in the digital making/creation and what skills they will learn. In particular, Digital Xtra Fund is keen to support projects which appeal to:
- audiences currently unengaged in digital technologies
- audiences from areas often excluded from digital tech activities through lack of local facilities or geography (i.e. areas of high deprivation and/or rural isolation)
- groups underrepresented in the digital technologies sector (i.e. girls and young women and/or minority groups)
