IOP Teacher Training Scholarships

Are you ready to embark on a career in teaching physics? The IOP is awarding £28,000 Scholarships to talented individuals starting teacher training in England in September 2019.

As an IOP scholar, not only will you receive £28,000 tax-free funding, you will also become part of a community of physics scholars, giving you access to:

  • Recognition: Free IOP membership for your teacher training year, including a subscription to Physics World
  • Community: Celebration events at the beginning of your training
  • Professional Development: Networking events and educational trips for scholars throughout your training year
  • Influence: Opportunities to contribute to physics education policy.

Find out more about the benefits of an IOP scholarship and apply.

If you have any questions, please get in touch by sending an email to or call us on 020 7470 4959.

You can keep up to date with the 2019/20 scholarship programme by signing up to receive email updates or by visiting us at a recruitment event.

As a prospective trainee teacher you are also strongly encouraged to register your interest in teaching via the Get into Teaching website.

The IOP Teacher Training Scholarships are run in partnership with the Department for Education and therefore are only available for eligible initial teacher training programmes in England. If you are awarded a scholarship it will replace the government bursary you will receive. It is not an additional award.
