Applications for Millennium Point Charitable Trust STEM Grant Programme is now open!

The Millennium Point Charitable Trust is once again preparing itself for a huge influx of applications, with the launch of its Small Grants Programme 2022. Grants from £1,000 to £20,000 can be made available to individual applicants ensuring the right resources can be supplied to support students.

Applications for the STEM Grant Programme are now open and set to close at 5pm on 3rd December 2021.

Endless possibilities with STEM

Over the past five years, the Millennium Point Charitable Trust has awarded over £2 million to charities, not-for-profits, community groups and schools to further STEM education. Millennium Point Charitable Trust has previously seen the rewarding outcome of past projects such as the Science Area at Ark Tindal Primary and Sensational Science at Birmingham Botanical Gardens. The latest round of funding in 2021 saw a wide range of successful applications – from a proposal to build a fully operational light aircraft, STEM training toolkits for schools and a car engineering workshop for girls.

Last year Millennium Point Trust saw 70 applications from not-for-profit organisations in aim of receiving a share of the grant money.

Abbie Vlahakis, CEO of Millennium Point said: “Along with our hugely popular degree scholarship, the Small Grants Programme is why we do what we do – to promote STEM education across the region and increase the opportunities for the next generation via some of the most exciting career paths available.

“Every year the quality and volume of applications that the Millennium Point Charitable Trust receives is fantastic, and I’ve no doubt that will be the case again – I can’t wait to see them.”
