If you are passionate about your subject and have the potential to be an inspirational teacher you could apply for a scholarship to support your training. Scholarships are awarded to the most gifted trainees in Physics, Maths, Chemistry and Computing in partnership with highly regarded professional subject associations.
As well as financial support, as a scholar you will enjoy a range of prestigious benefits, including:
- free membership from the professional subject associations awarding the scholarship
- access to resources and events to support you through your training
- support to improve your teacher practice and subject knowledge
- networking opportunities from a community of like-minded scholars
To be eligible for a scholarship, you should have at least a 2:1 degree or above and want to teach Chemistry, Computing, Maths or Physics. You can still apply if you have a 2:2, but you will need to provide evidence of significant relevant experience. Scholarships are awarded in place of a bursary.
To apply for a scholarship and for further information, you should visit the appropriate subject association website:
- Computing: BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT
- Chemistry: Royal Society of Chemistry
- Maths: Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarships
- Physics: Institute of Physics scholarships
If you are not successful in your application for a scholarship and you have secured a place on a qualifying teacher training course in England, you will still receive the standard bursary.
