The Raspberry Pi Education Fund is now accepting applications!

GUIDANCE FOR APPLICANTS

Successful applicants will be those who have demonstrated that their projects will enhance children’s understanding of computing; or shows how computing can be used to enhance learning in other subjects – particularly, but not exclusively, STEM and the creative arts. We also welcome proposals that promote training and continued professional development of teaching staff in computing as part of their overall project goals. Project proposals can target either formal or informal education and applications can be made by clubs, schools, voluntary organisation and not-for-profit organisations. Unfortunately we are not able to award grants to an individual or groups of individuals. We will accept applications from commercial for profit organisation, but would only make awards in exceptional circumstances. Project proposals do not have to use or exploit Raspberry Pi technology but typically we would expect any resources created as a result of the funding to be made available under an open public license of some form. Overall, the Foundation seeks to support a range of projects: from those that increase participation in computing, to those that target excellence.
