ASDAN Grants

Did you know that ASDAN gives grants for educational purposes, especially where these help narrow the gaps in educational attainment between the better-off and the less well-off?

ASDAN is a charity and aims to run as a company that holds to a key vision and a set of values.

As a part of this, we have established a charitable fund, which provides grants to ASDAN centres to do things differently, especially those that help to increase educational opportunity and alleviate the effects of deprivation and poverty, both in the UK and overseas.

Grant applications for 2016 are now closed. The window for 2017 Grant applications will reopen on 1 December 2016 and close on 31 January 2017.
