New Grant to Mark the Century of WWI (UK) School that wish to develop projects that improve the understanding of World War I can apply for grants of between £3,000 and £10,000 through the Heritage Lottery Fund’s (HLF) new £6million small grants programme “First World War: then and now” .

The aim of this new grants programme is to help communities mark the Centenary of the First World War. 
The programme will award £1 million per year for six years. 
HLF want to fund projects which enable communities to understand more about the heritage of the First World War. In particular, HLF would like to help young people aged 11–25 to take an active part in the Centenary commemorations. 

•  focusing on the identification, recording and preservation of local heritage;
• the creation of community archives or collections; 
• exhibitions, trails, smartphone apps and creative material such as plays and music based on heritage sources, the idea is to create an enduring cultural and educational legacy for communities. 

First World War: then and now is a rolling programme, and applications can be submitted at any time.

Frederick Soddy Trust (UK)

The Frederick Soddy Trust, with the support of the Geographically Association, runs an annual Award Scheme for schools. The Trust provides support for expeditions and fieldwork which include the 'study of the whole life of an area with major emphasis on the human community'. Each year, the Trust will make five awards of between £250 and £550. Each award depends on the merits of the individual project. The award is for a group (of any number) of pupils between 5 and 18 years of age: the Trust wishes to encourage pupils of all ages to take part in field studies. There is no prescribed form of application. For example, recent schools that received funding are Lyndon School; Tarbert Academy; Churchdown Village Junior School; and Ullswater Community College.
A case for an award must meet the Trust's objective of the study being one of "the whole life of an area" with an emphasis on the human community. It should be no more than 500 words, but should include brief details of the plan, administrative arrangements and a budget. A map is essential.

The application, which must be signed by both the person leading the project and the Head-teacher, must be sent not later than 31 January 2014.
