Schools urged to apply for Millennium Point STEM grant

Solihull Editorial 29th Nov, 2022   0

THERE’S just one week left for cash-strapped schools and non-profit organisations to apply for a grant of up to £20,000 through the Millennium Point Charitable Trust’s Small Grants Programme.

The programme aims to assist funding in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) projects.

Over the past five years, the Millennium Point Charitable Trust has awarded over £2 million to charities, not-for-profits, community groups and schools to further STEM education and it’s your last chance to become one of these.

Abigail Vlahakis, CEO at Millennium Point said: “The West Midlands is the largest hub for science and innovation outside London, with the youngest population in Europe and one of the highest percentiles of STEM graduates in the UK.

“With many schools being forced to cut costs and resources to deliver their curriculums, we risk seeing the skills gap widen as less children are engaged in STEM, which is why this initiative is crucial now, more than ever.”

The deadline is 5pm on Friday December 2.
