Apply for a 2024 Aberdeenshire Grant


In 2024, a number of grants of up to £2,000 each will again be made available by the Jo Walters Trust to people or organisations with a strong link to Aberdeenshire. We are inviting applications for project funding that will provide educational opportunities to people in the outdoors.  


We'd love to hear from you if you have plans that you believe could help more people get outside to learn something! Whether it's for groups, families, individuals or schools, if you think a grant of up to £2,000 would help you achieve it please do apply below. 

From the outward bound expeditions she did at school, to sailing adventures and her time in the OTC doing army training, Jo Walters was the product of plenty of time outdoors, and she believed it had huge benefits, both physical and mental. We know she would want more people to benefit from being in the outdoors, just as she did, and so in her memory, we are offering financial support to help people like you make this happen!

Application Deadline: 7th June 2024

Jo Walters Trust Maths Grants 2024

Do you have a project that could have a real and lasting impact on how people learn and respond to maths? If you do, please apply for one of our grants this year - read on for how to do so. 

  • Would you like to inspire your students?
  • Could your idea raise attainment and promote a love of Maths?
  • Would a grant of £1000 help achieve this goal?


maths 3The Jo Walters Trust is offering a grant of up to £1,000 to support projects which help and inspire pupils to engage with mathematics. 
Applicants are not expected to reinvent the wheel: we are looking for ideas that will help inspire students and help those teaching them, after a lot of screen time for everyone in the last few years we hope to hear from people with ideas that don't involve yet more time on screens. Ideas could include trips, workshops, competitions, an action-research project within the classroom, purchase of equipment or something totally different. We don’t want to constrain applications so will welcome all ideas, large and small, but we remain unlikely to fund what schools and Local Authorities should themselves fund, such as teacher cover and CPD, smaller or extra classes, or coaching small groups through the curriculum. 

For ideas, feel free to have a look at the successful applications from 20182019202020212022. 2023


Application Deadline: 7th June 2024
