Apply for funding

Covid-19 epidemic update: We had planned to open our next general grant-funding round in March 2020, but this was paused following the partial closure of schools, nurseries and colleges. We are keeping this under review, with the aim of resuming our grant-funding work as soon as we can. Sign up to our free EEF News Alerts to keep up-to-date.


The EEF's grant funding tests the impact of high-potential projects aiming to raise the attainment and wider outcomes of 3-18 year-olds, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. 

We do this to find out what's most likely to work effectively and cost-effectively, and to put that into action across the country.
