Welcome to the Maths Scholars site

This is the first step of an exciting journey taking you towards a career teaching Maths!

New financial incentives to teach Maths 
  • £28K tax-free bursary during your initial teacher training year.
  • Followed by three additional early-career payments of £2,000 each (or £3,000 each if teaching in specified areas of England) in your second, third and fourth year of teaching, providing you have taught in a state-funded school in England since completing your teacher training course
  • Applications open on Friday 11 October 2019.

  

In previous years, we have received an overwhelming number of applications to the Maths Scholarships which led to the Scheme closing earlier than expected. Should this happen again, then we will close early so follow us on social media to keep up to date.  We also advise you not to leave submitting your application until nearer the closing date.
