SHINE funds organisations to deliver education projects to 4-18 year olds in disadvantaged areas of London and Manchester with clearly defined outcomes concerned with raising academic achievement levels.
Keen to apply to us?
We do not accept unsolicited applications. If you are interested in applying to one of our funding streams please make sure you download and read the guidelines below carefully before contacting us.
SHINE wishes to build long term relationships with the organisations we fund. Therefore the majority of our grants are 2-3 years and are in excess of £20,000. We fund new start-ups, pilots and expansion or replication of projects. We will also fund core costs and staff posts.
Please note we do not fund:
- bursaries or any kind of student fees; or
- projects outside of England.
2012-13 funding priorities
Our aim is to have a balanced portfolio of grants, focusing on literacy, numeracy and science. As we are already funding a high number of literacy focused projects in our innovation strand, we will be prioritising applications that focus on numeracy and science. We are also interested in funding projects focusing on speech, language and communication at Key Stage One.
We are no longer accepting enquiries for our current funding round for the innovation strand. The next funding round will open in either April or August 2013.
