Do you have a great idea for taking part in Maths Week Scotland 2022? Don’t let the lack of funds hold you back! The Small Grants Fund is back for another round of funding, and will re-open for applications from 3 August to 19 August 2022.

The Small Grants Fund is available to individuals, groups, schools, museums or other organisations. This year so far, we are already supporting 23 different activities and initiatives across Scotland, through our first round of funding applications in May.
