Maths scholarships

Applications for maths scholarships are now closed for September 2018. If you apply for teacher training starting this September, you could still get a £20,000 tax-free bursary while you train as a teacher. If you're eligible for a bursary, you could also receive early-career payments totaling £10,000 once in teaching - that's a total of £30,000 to teach maths. Further information on scholarship programmes that commence in September 2019 will be released later in the autumn term, so please continue to check this page. 

If you’ve got a love of maths and a desire to teach you could receive £32,000 to teach maths - a £22,000 tax-free scholarship while you train and a further £10,000 after tax once in teaching. Other benefits of maths scholarships include membership offers, networking opportunities and professional development support.

Offered by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) in collaboration with the London Mathematical Society (LMS), the Royal Statistical Society (RSS), The Mathematical Association (MA), Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI), and the National STEM Learning Centre, the scholarship gives the best maths graduates the chance to start an exciting career in teaching.

As part of the scholarship, you’ll get access to superb professional resources and two years’ free membership of professional bodies. You’ll also join a community of like-minded and passionate maths enthusiasts, giving you the chance to be inspired, get support and share new ideas.

Eligibility

To qualify for a maths scholarship, you’ll need a 2:1 or higher in a subject with significant mathematical content. If you have a 2:2 degree, you are still encouraged to apply if you can also demonstrate relevant experience.

If you are looking to complete a subject knowledge enhancement course in maths before September 2018, you are also eligible to apply.

Prior to assessment, you should be able to showcase exceptional subject knowledge, dedication to teaching maths and the potential to become an inspirational and talented maths teacher.

Find out more about the eligibility criteria.

How to apply

You’ll need to apply directly through the IMA website. This will need to be completed in one go, as applications cannot be saved part way through.
