The IET is committed to encouraging students toward studying science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects and considering engineering and technology based courses and careers.

Any organisation capable of developing and delivering UK-based projects which promote STEM subjects to school children can apply for funding, including schools, IET Local Networks and IET TPNs. Awards of up to £5000 can be offered.

Applications for funding must be endorsed by the IET Local Network in which the project will be carried out, and applicants require a referee who can confirm their ability to deliver the project.

2014 funding round

Bids for funding will be accepted from 1 January 2014 to 3 March 2014 for projects taking place between 1 May 2014 and 30 April 2015. Applications received after 3 March cannot be considered.

To apply for funding you must:

  • read the criteria and guidelines;
  • develop your application in collaboration with the Schools Liaison Officer for your IET Local Network;
  • submit your application electronically to the regional liaison officer.

All successful applicants are required to submit a report on completion of the funded project. Applicants who have not submitted a report for a previously funded project will not be considered for further funding until the outstanding report has been submitted and acknowledged.
