Education Endowment Foundation Launches Spring 2023 Funding Round

Education, Employment and Training

21 February 2023/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Grants are available to organisations to help raise the standards of underperforming schools in England.

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) grant funding tests the impact of high-potential projects aiming to raise the attainment and wider outcomes of 3 – 18 year-olds, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The EEF’s funding rounds will now focus on particular topics, and projects will be funded within selected themes under these topics.

For the Spring 2023 grant funding round EEF are looking for applications for programmes that have some evidence of promise for this funding round in the three following research priority areas: 

  • Teacher retention and recruitment
  • Education Technology (EdTech)
  • Post-16.

These priority areas have been identified using existing EEF evidence reviews as having gaps in the evidence base and with the potential to benefit disadvantaged pupils and in consultation with stakeholders.

Further information on each of the three priority areas can be found on EEF's website.

Eligible applicants are as follows:

  • Registered charities
  • Not-for-profit organisations
  • Individual schools
  • Clusters of schools
  • Teacher groups
  • Universities
  • Colleges
  • Academy chains
  • Mutuals
  • Co-operatives
  • Or any combination of the above.

There are no set minimum or maximum award amounts.


How To Apply

Applicants must complete the online application form by the deadline of 23 March 2023.

For more information, visit the Education Endowment Foundation website.
