Funding for Projects that Teach Digital Skills to Young People (Scotland)

The Digital Xtra Fund, which supports projects that teach digital technologies skills to young people has opened its first funding round.

A total of £50,000 is available for projects that inspire young people by taking digital skills out of the classroom and teaching concepts like computational thinking, coding, digital making, or data science in a fun environment. Grants of up to £5,000 are available for innovative, adaptable, and sustainable projects, particularly those that engage with groups such as girls and young women, who are underrepresented in the digital sector. Its ultimate aim is to increase the number of young people from all backgrounds entering highly skilled digital careers.

The closing date for applications is the 1st September 2017.
