Teesside based global manufacturing company Venator has launched a £10,000 Bright Ideas Fund to inspire innovation and stimulate learning in STEM subjects across the North East region.
The Bright Ideas Fund will give 40 grants of £250 to groups and organisations that encourage innovative ideas within science, technology, engineering and maths.
The fund is now open for applications from schools, colleges, clubs, charities and other groups that could benefit from a financial boost to pay for resources such as safety equipment, outreach services or an educational day out.
Applications are now being accepted for the Bright Ideas Fund, and will run until midnight on 31 March 2019. To apply, visit www.venatorcommunity.com and submit 250 words about how your group or organisation would use the £250 grant to promote STEM based activities. All successful projects will go head-to-head in a month long online public vote opening on 5 April 2019, with the 40 most voted-for applicants each receiving £250.
All proposed projects must benefit communities in the North East of England within the local authority boroughs of Darlington, Durham, Gateshead, Hambleton, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Newcastle, North Tyneside, Northumberland, Redcar & Cleveland, South Tyneside, Stockton and Sunderland.
