Funding

Don’t let a lack of funds stop you from taking part in Maths Week Scotland. Apply for financial help through our Grants Fund.

The Maths Week Scotland Grants Fund is back offering grants of between £2,000 - £5,000 to support organisations, partnerships and charities to develop in-person events or digital activities for Maths Week Scotland 2024.

While it is preferred that activities take place during Maths Week Scotland (23 - 29 September 2024), this is not set in stone but it is a requirement that all projects be completed by 31st December 2024.

The final deadline for submission is 17:00 on Monday 10 June 2024.

Applications received will be reviewed and advised of outcome by Monday 24 June 2024.

Download the application form and guidance document below. Please contact a.brien@nms.ac.uk to apply.

Under new Scottish Government legislation, all successful grantees will be required to comply with the Fair Work First policy. Guidance for this can be downloaded below, and successful grantees will be sent the relevant paperwork to complete.
