Funding from the EEF is available to any not-for-profit organisation: mainstream primary and secondary schools, charities, local authorities, academy chains, universities, social enterprises and community interest companies.
For-profit companies may be involved as partners with, or suppliers to, the main not-for-profit applicant. In such cases, the EEF will need to ensure that our funding is being used for public benefit and meets our objectives.
Please note that the EEF can only fund projects for the benefit of pupils and schools in England, including early years settings. We are, however, very open to innovative ideas from overseas that are applicable to schools in England.
The EEF does not have a set minimum or maximum size of grant that we award. Past EEF grants have ranged from £90,000 to £1.8m, with the rest somewhere in between: we spend as much as we have to, but not a penny more than we need to, in order to trial projects we think may raise attainment and narrow the gap. The amount you request should be commensurate both with the nature and scale of the project and with your capacity to ensure its successful delivery.
The EEF’s remit is to identify, fund and evaluate projects that will raise the attainment of children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds in schools in England. We then aim to scale up those which are shown to work best at narrowing the attainment gap between children from low-income backgrounds and their better-off peers.
