Screen Education Fund

Funding to increase abilities in and access to screen education across Scotland.

What is the purpose of the Screen Education Fund?

The Screen Education Fund exists to support pilot projects with innovation at their core alongside programmes of work which aim to develop increased understanding of the potential of screen education, and support the provision of screen education and the new curriculum in a variety of formal, informal and non-formal settings.

Working with partners and educators, Screen Scotland aims to put screen education where it belongs, at the heart of learning for all, in formal, informal and non-formal education settings. Screen literacy is a fundamental right for everyone, and our aim is to inspire and equip people across Scotland to be able to access, enjoy, understand, create, explore and share film and screen throughout their lives.

Who can apply?

This fund is open to individuals, organisations and other constituted groups based in Scotland whose proposed activities meet the eligibility criteria. This can include – but is not limited to – local authorities, arm’s length external organisations, schools, colleges, universities, cinemas, film festivals, libraries or media access centres.

Applications should be submitted by one lead organisation, with letters of commitment from any named partners.

If you are a school seeking funding to deliver projects that provide new or develop existing screen education opportunities, please instead consider applying to our Schools Screen Education Fund.
