Jo Walters Trust Maths Grants 2021


At the Jo Walters Trust, we are keenly aware of the enormous impact that the Covid-19 pandemic is having on all aspects of life. We know that great projects can alleviate some of the problems caused by Covid. We’d like to help fund some of those projects.

In a much altered world, education remains a priority for children and young people. What we have learnt from weeks of remote learning and home schooling is the value of inspirational teaching - now more than ever. Do you have a project that could have a real and lasting impact on children learning maths? Something that can still be delivered despite all the constraints in a Covid secure classroom or educational setting? If you do, please apply for one of our grants this year - read on for how to do so.

  • Would you like to inspire your students?
  • Could your idea raise attainment and promote a love of Maths?
  • Would a grant of £1000 help achieve this goal?
  • Can it be delivered, effectively, even through the global pandemic?

Apply for a 2021 Aberdeenshire Grant

In 2021 (as in previous years), a number of grants of up to £2,000 each will be made available by the Jo Walters Trust to people or organisations with a strong link to Aberdeenshire. In these ongoing extraordinary times, we are again inviting applications for project funding that will provide educational opportunities to people in the outdoors. Helping to facilitate people learning in the outdoors is one of the most valuable things we can do, particularly after a year when many have felt constrained and contained.

We recognise that it continues to be difficult to organise anything but are hopeful that this is getting easier. We'd love to hear from you if you have plans that you believe could help more people get outside to learn something! Whether it's for groups, families, individuals or schools, if you think a grant of up to £2,000 would help you achieve it please do apply below. 

From the outward bound expeditions she did at school, to sailing adventures and her time in the OTC doing army training, Jo Walters was the product of plenty of time outdoors and believed it had huge benefits, both physical and mental. We know she would want more people to benefit from being in the outdoors, just as she did, and so in her memory, we are offering financial support to help this happen.

A few projects we have supported so far are listed below and might provide inspiration to anyone applying for a grant in 2021. You can see all the recipients of the last three years' of grants through the links below:
