Grant funding for First World War commemorations

ww1_commemorationsEvery secondary school in Wales has the opportunity to apply to receive up to £1,000 to develop creative and innovative projects to commemorate the war.

Each school is able to decide how best they can do this, and they could also work with other schools and undertake collaborative projects. The commemorations will mark the one hundredth anniversary of the conflict and should encourage debate and discussion.

If you’re interested in applying, e-mail FWWCommemorationGrant@Wales.gsi.gov.uk to receive a grant application pack.

The funding opportunity follows on from the First Minister’s statement made on 28 October 2013, where he announced £850k to support educational legacy (external link) and launched the Framework Programme for the commemoration in Wales 2014-2018,  Cymru’n Cofio  Wales Remembers 1914-1918.

The programme will help young people understand the events and consequences of the conflict and link with the wider commemorations of the First World War that are taking place around the World.
