With an IOP scholarship, you get:

The scholarships are funded by Department for Education in partnership with The Institute of Physics.
Hear what our previous IOP Scholars have to say
The biggest benefit of taking up an IOP scholarship is the support from other trainees and members, although my interview was online, I still managed to connect with other scholars during the introduction days. Also, I think the scholarship shows another level of dedication to teaching so it looks good on your CV. Another benefit is the large amount of resources available from the IOP from IOP spark to TalkPhysics to CPD and not forgetting all the benefits that come from being an IOP member - Ashleigh, IOP Scholar
The financial incentive has been a big help in my training year. However, what's really helped me is growing my awareness of the fantastic resources the IOP have to offer teachers. IOP Spark has been a life saver this year, particularly in addressing student's misconceptions - Daniel, IOP Scholar
