Royal Society Pilot – £500 available to set up a Mathematics Club


Funding of up to £500 is available from the Royal Society to set up a club (for at least ten students) that can demonstrate that students will acquire new skills in problem solving. The club should give students the opportunity to tackle maths or computing–based problems.

The club must run, ideally, from March/April 2018 to the end of June 2018.

If you wish to extend the club into the next academic year we would ask that you complete your activities by November 2018, or at least be in a position to provide an online evaluation such that we can share your experiences with other schools.

If you would like to develop the club further or start later we are, in this pilot phase, open to suggestions and ideas so please do not feel restricted by these parameters, they are provided as guidelines only.

We would hope that you complete a minimum of 10 problem solving activities which can be documented and shared.

We would hope that the teacher will ultimately develop an idea for a Partnership Grant project in the following year (this is not a requirement though).

You will need to specify what you wish to spend the money on and how much you wish to apply for. Receipts for items costing more than £200 will need to be submitted at the end of your pilot study. The maximum amount of money you can apply for is £500.

If you are interested in applying for this funding opportunities please complete the attached application form (below) and email to: by February 20th at the latest.
