Education in schools

Introduction

This year we are offering a Fellowship theme on Education in schools. We will be seeking applications on any topic related to improving or transforming how children and young people learn in schools. More information is below.

We will open again for Fellowship applications in 2023. You can sign up for application alerts by email here.

We particularly welcome projects that help children to enjoy good mental health, or projects that address the widening attainment gap affecting disadvantaged pupils (especially in STEM subjects). These may include applications that seek innovative ways to better equip and empower teachers to support the wellbeing and education of their students.

Fellows in this theme form part of a dedicated community specialising in this area, with tailored opportunities for support and networking in this field.

This annual theme is offered in partnership with the Mercers’ Charitable Foundation.

Note for applicants: If you are proposing to visit Finland, our experience with previous Fellowships has shown that the education system is very different and unlikely to be transferable to the UK context. We therefore only accept proposals that focus on specific educational projects in Finland, rather than on the education system overall. Please also note that Finnish schools receive numerous requests for visits from international educationalists so you will need to have approached the schools or projects in advance, and have an agreement in principle for a visit, before submitting your application.

See Fellows' impact in this theme.

We recognise our responsibility to the environment through our Fellowship programme and our operations. Our progress on this is explained here.
