ICT in schools - funding for projects

Lots of people ask: 'where can I get funding for my ICT project'.

There's no one answer; it depends on things like what they want to achieve, their employer, the availability of local, national and EU funding, possibility of sponsorship, etc.

But here are two current opportunities for Scottish schools to bid for funding for their project proposals.

The BT Education 'School Awards' scheme is well-established and the ICT projects of many Scottish teachers have already benefitted from it. The closing date for the current phase is on 14th November 2005.

The new Microsoft 'Partners in Learning' initiative in Scotland, recently launched, is inviting requests for proposals from teachers. It aims "to support innovative projects that use ICT in its widest sense", and gives some examples which use technologies like digital audio and GPS tracking.

Remember: If you don't ask, you don't get.
