Funding to run CREST Awards with underrepresented audiences
If registration and support costs are a barrier to running CREST, grants of up to £600 are now available to support and enable schools and organisations to run CREST Awards with young people underrepresented in STEM.
Our recent research into the impact of CREST Silver shows the benefits of CREST are even more significant for disadvantaged students:
CREST Silver students eligible for free school meals saw an increase in their best science GCSE score (two thirds of a grade) compared to a matched control group
Students who were eligible for free school meals and took part in a CREST Silver Award were 38% more likely to take a STEM subject at AS Level than the matched control group.
The next application deadline to apply for this funding is Friday 20th October 2017 at 6pm. More information or apply online
