  • Digital Xtra Fund

    Created: 03/09/2018

    Grants of up to £5,000 will be awarded to extracurricular activity providers that teach skills such as coding, data science, and computational thinking, and help inspire Scotland’s next generation of designers, developers, and digital technologists.

    The core objective of the Digital Xtra Fund is to increase the number and range of young people learning digital technologies and computing science-related skills through extracurricular activity. Projects are sought that tangibly demonstrate exciting and stimulating ways of engaging young people.

    In particular, the Digital Xtra Fund is keen to support projects which appeal to:

    • young people previously unengaged in digital technologies;
    • girls and young women;
    • young people from areas often excluded from digital technologies activities through lack of local facilities/geography (i.e. areas of high deprivation and/or rural isolation);
    • young people from other underrepresented groups (i.e. minority ethnic groups or young people with disabilities).

    Next deadline: 01 November 2018
