School partnership bursaries

Do you have a link with a school in Germany? Did your schools engage in any joint activities in 2019?

Keeping up connections between the UK and Germany is now more important than ever. To help keep school partnerships alive, UK-German Connection is once again offering schools special partnership bursaries of £1,000.00 (NB: please do also encourage your German partner school to apply).

How to enter

Fill in a short online questionnaire to tell us about your partnership activities in 2019 (*), your plans for 2020 and how you would spend the bursary from UK-German Connection.

The bursaries can be used towards:

  • visits to a partner school (pupil or teacher travel, accommodation and subsistence)
  • joint activities between you and your partner school in Germany
  • materials for joint projects

They must be used for joint activity taking place in 2020 and (predominently) support direct contact between young people from both countries. A part of the bursary may also be used towards costs incurred while hosting your partners, as long as these costs are for joint activities between pupils from both schools.

Please note that they may not be used to cover tourist-related activities, hardware, insurance or supply cover.

Complete this form to submit your entry.

Please send us your answers by 31 January 2020.

Schools will be informed of the outcome of their application by the end of February 2020.

Contact us if you have any questions or would like to discuss your partnership.

(*) If your school received a bursary in 2016/17, 2017/18 or 2018/2019, please provide details of how your partnership will be further developed in 2020.
