Royal Society of Chemistry



Enhanced Equipment Grant


These funds are awarded against bids for equipment that cannot be purchased through a school’s mainstream teaching budget and which would enrich the learning experience of students in either primary (science) or secondary (chemistry) studies.  


In particular, this would be for equipment that supports delivery of the practical aspect of chemistry education and an application will be enhanced by a demonstration of the diversity of application of the equipment within and between student cohorts.


The application will be made by a teacher at a primary or secondary school for sums ranging from £100-£500.
