There has never been a greater need for fundraisers to get-together and share knowledge and experience.

This Meet the Funder event is with David Lakin, Head of Education and Safeguarding, and Zoe Buss, Education Manager: Regional Liaison, both from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

The IET is working to engineer a better world, and inspire, inform and influence the global engineering community to engineer a better world.

Inspiring the next generation of engineers through Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) activities is at the heart of the Education department, and is achieved by providing a range of complimentary resources linked to the UK curriculum and partnering with organisations to create experiences that inspire educators and learners alike.

Through attending this session, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the Engineering Education Grant Scheme (EEGS), which is jointly funded by The IET and The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and other smaller funding opportunities available from the IET.

EEGS was designed to support UK-based educational projects aiming to promote a better understanding of engineering, inspire young people to study STEM subjects or raise awareness of engineering and technology-based careers, among young people aged 4-19.

The Spring round will open the week following this Meet The Funders event On 24th January 2022.

By attending this event we aim to give you the opportunity to:

- Ask questions about both the grant programmes, including the application process.
- Hear about who the programmes are focused on supporting.
- Better understand what projects and applicants are considered eligible, and whether your project fits within this.
- Gain an insight into the decision-making processes led by the funder.
- Receive advice direct from The Institution of Engineering and Technology

This Meet the Funder event is suitable for any STEM provider interested in providing engineering activities and projects based in the UK, including:

- Individuals
- Schools
- SEND Schools
- Youth Groups
- STEM organisations
- Registered Charities
- Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIO) / Foundations CIO
