to Millennium Mathematics Project - STIMULUS programme
STIMULUS places Cambridge student volunteers in maths and science classes.
STIMULUS is a peer-assisted learning programme, involving Cambridge University students from a wide range of disciplines. Students of subjects such as: mathematics, engineering, physics, medicine, computer science, biology, zoology, natural sciences and law help with maths, science and ICT classes in primary and secondary schools around the city of Cambridge.
STIMULUS creates around 300 volunteer placements each year: each placement involves a student volunteer helping for one afternoon each week throughout a University term in their assigned school.
Philanthropic giving is at the heart of the success of the Collegiate University, enabling us to make discoveries that change the world and to ensure that our students received an unrivalled education.
A gift of £90,000 from The Parasol Foundation Trust to the Cambridge Commonwealth European and International Trust at the University of Cambridge will create two scholarships for outstanding graduate students to undertake studies in science, technology, engineering or mathematics subjects over the next three years.
