Deadline 7th January 2020
The British & Foreign School Society (BFSS) provides grants to organisations with UK charitable status for educational activities.
The funding is intended to support charitable organisations with new projects, pilot projects, or projects which are planning a distinct new phase of development and that support the education or training for young people up to the age of 25.
The Society currently has three priority areas for which it particularly welcomes applications:
- Conflict or natural disaster: Projects designed to address the need for re-establishing and renewing education where the provision of education has suffered from conflict or natural disaster.
- Girls’ education: Projects that focus on enhancing the opportunities and reducing barriers for girls to access education.
- Looked-after children: Looked-after children have significantly poorer educational outcomes than children not in care. BFSS welcomes projects that pilot approaches to improving the educational attainment of looked-after children so that in time they are able to take advantage of opportunities afforded by tertiary education and employment.
There are three funding rounds per year. The 2020 deadlines for applications are 7 January, 10 April and 19 August 2020.
