Scholarships and Financial Incentives

There are three types of funding available for teacher training – depending on your circumstances, you could receive all three:

  1. Tax-free bursary or scholarship
  2. Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan
  3. Additional financial support if you’re a parent or have a disability

Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarships

Teaching mathematics in secondary schools is exciting and dynamic. You can make a real difference at every level – even while completing your initial teacher training.

If you’ve got a love of mathematics, a desire to teach and the potential to be an inspirational teacher, then you can apply for a Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarship.  You could receive a £26,000 tax-free scholarship to support you while you train.

Closing date for applications currently scheduled for Monday 5 July 2021.

Webinars are run by the Maths Scholarship Team.  The Maths Scholarships Team will be streaming live, talking about the Scheme and answering questions such as: how it is different to the government’s normal bursary for initial teacher training; what additional benefits do Maths Scholars receive as part of the Maths Scholarship; how can the Scheme help an ITT trainee during their initial teacher training year and NQT year. 

The dates of webinars are:
