There are many sources of additional funding available to schools through external grants and funding sources which can be applied for. Key factors to success in accessing this funding are, firstly, selecting a funding source which is appropriate for your project and school and, secondly, having a good application or bid in terms of structure and use of the right terminology.
This element of the Resources Centre aims to help you with your funding applications in terms of:
- A frequently updated list of available grants and funding sources
- Some helpful hints for writing successful funding bids and applications
- Examples of successful bids and funding applications
- Case study examples of other community resources which you may be able to access for school projects.
If you have any suggestions of funding sources which are not already included within the BM&NiS Grant and Funding Update and which you are willing to share with other North Yorkshire school colleagues please submit them using the e-mail address detailed below. Also, if you have any examples of successful bid applications or case study examples of organisations providing free resources to your school that you are willing to share with others again please submit them for publication in the Resources Centre.
