The Digital Xtra Fund was created to inspire young people to learn advanced digital technologies skills through high quality, exciting extracurricular activities, thus expanding the talent pipeline of young people who might study related disciplines and ultimately pursue a career in digital technologies.
Applications for round 5 of the grant awards are now open.
The deadline for submissions is Thursday October 31 2019 with the application evaluation period taking place throughout November.
Digital Xtra Fund will be looking for evidence that the grant is needed, is of value, and that the activity will provide a positive impact on the provision of extracurricular digital technologies and computing science activity across Scotland for young people aged 16 years and under.
Each project may apply for funding of between £500 and £5,000 from a total funding pot of £75,000.
