Education Grants

The London Mathematical Society has a major commitment to mathematics education, and offers the following grants schemes to teachers and other educators:

Small Grants for Education scheme

This scheme offers grants of up to £800 for partial funding of events that stimulate interest and enable involvement in mathematics from Key Stage 1 (age 5+) to undergraduate level and beyond. See more information here.

Grants for Teacher CPD scheme

This scheme is divided into three parts:

1. Individual Grants for Teacher CPD

This grant offers up to £400 to individual teachers/educators. The grant may be used to (a) support teacher attendance at conferences/events run by professional mathematics organisations; (b) assist providers of professional development to run conferences and courses that allow participants to further their professional development; or (c) cover the costs of external trainers in schools/educational institutions. See more information here.

2. Multiple Grants for Teacher CPD

This grant offers up to £2,000 to organisers of regular mathematics education conferences and is intended to contribute to the travel/subsistence expenses of attendees of the event in question. See more information here.

3. Grants for Teacher CPD: Teaching and Learning in HE

This grant offers up to £500 for partial funding of one-day workshops disseminating good practice in teaching undergraduate mathematics. See more information here.


Grant applications are considered by the LMS Education Committee. Four rounds of applications are considered per year. Click the links above or in the menu to the left for more details.
