EDUCATION ENDOWMENT FUND
The overall objective of the programme is to break the link between family background and educational achievement, ensuring that young people from all backgrounds have the opportunity to fulfil their aspirations and make the most of their talents. Applicants should be educational establishments, EEF would not expect to fund a project which reaches less than 100 students, and ideally would want it to cover more than one school.
