British and Foreign School Society Launches £1m Displacement Education Fund

Children & Young People

18 July 2022/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding to support projects working with displaced children and young people both in the UK and internationally.

The British and Foreign School Society's (BFSS) new £1 million Displacement Education Fund has been launched to address the specific challenges that children and young people who have been displaced by conflict face in accessing quality education.

Grants are available to support UK registered charities, not-for-profit community-based organisations, schools, academies, colleges and other educational establishments with projects working with displaced children and young people both internationally and in the UK.

Two funding streams are available:

  • UK projects - BFSS supports projects to improve access to educational opportunity (including further education or employment opportunities for those aged 16-25), or reduce barriers to achievement, for children and young people living in the UK who are refugees or asylum seekers, unaccompanied children or children of undocumented migrants.
  • International projects - BFSS supports projects to improve the quality of or access to education for young people up to the age of 25 who have been displaced by conflict. This includes refugees, asylum seekers in any given country, Internally Displaced People and stateless persons.

Grants are available for new or pilot projects which have started within the past 12 months to meet a newly arisen need.

UK projects

  • £10,000 to £60,000 for up to two years (maximum £30,000 per year) for registered charities or educational establishments.
  • £10,000 to £20,000 for up to two years (maximum £10,000 per year) for organisations which are not registered charities or educational establishments.

For registered charities and education establishments, annual grant payments cannot exceed 50% of an organisation's three-year average income.

International projects

  • 10,000 to £60,000 per project (maximum £30,000 per year) for up to two years.

Annual grant payments cannot exceed 50% of an organisation's three-year average income.

There are no deadlines. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

 

How To Apply

Stage one applications can be made at any time for UK or international projects. These will be assessed on a rolling basis and shortlisted applicants will be invited to submit a stage two proposal.

Stage one application forms are available to complete on the BFSS website.
