Guidance for the Funds and the Application Form can be downloaded. The closing date for both Funds is 30th September 2015 at 12 noon.

Any queries on either Fund should be sent to  All emails will be forwarded to a relevant policy colleague (either within Scottish Government or Education Scotland) to answer.  A Q&A will also be posted which will be updated as required throughout the summer.  You can also now book onto the first round of webinars which offer the opportunity to hear from policy officials about the priorities for their areas, and also some more general information about the Fund and particular aspects of the application process.  Another round of webinars will be notified on the web pages soon.
