All participation fees will go directly to the session, and the Project Managers will have the opportunity to apply for major grants together.
We strongly encourage all applicants to get in touch with a teacher at a school who will be willing to help you to, for example, find venues, to establish a partnership in this early stage, and to add their endorsement to your application.
Selected applicants are required to participate in the two Project Manager Summits, that will be held 25-26 March and 22-23 July.
HOW DO I APPLY?
Submit a letter of motivation of no more than 600 words, and an outline, no word limit, for your session containing 1. suggestions for venues (feel free to get in touch with venues before sending in your application) 2. suggestions for evening activities or other plans that will make your session unique 3. a suggested session theme with a short description 4. any other ideas you might have.
