Don't let a lack of funding hold you back from getting involved in Maths Week Scotland 2022! Got a great idea and need a boost to get started? We're able to support projects big and small to create a Maths Week Scotland with something for everyone.

We have two difference funding opportunities available for Maths Week Scotland 2022 depending on the size of your project: Large Grants Fund and Small Grants Fund,

Large Grants Fund

The Maths Week Scotland Large Grants Fund is now closed and will open again in 2023.

Small Grants Fund

There are two rounds of the Small Grants Fund each year, in Spring and in late Summer, with funding provided by Scottish Government, Edinburgh Mathematical Society and Glasgow Mathematical Journal Trust.

Applicants are able to apply for up to £2,000 allowing individuals, community groups, schools, libraries, museums and other organisations to take part in Maths Week Scotland to create their own innovative events and resources.

The Small Grants Fund is now closed, and will open again in Spring 2023.

Maths in Museums

Maths in Museums Fund was a smaller fund available in 2021 to local museums. Six museums received funding Gairloch Museum, National Mining Museum Scotland, Scottish Maritime Museum, East Lothian Council Museums Service, South Lanarkshire Museums and Summerlee Museums. Activity varied from self led trails to schools workshops to family activity days. You can see more here

For many it was the first time taking part in Maths Week Scotland, and the first time running maths focused activity at their sites. Each attended a training session in February 2021 run by Maths Week Scotland and received support from Education Scotland staff in developing their resources.
