The Core Objective of Digital Xtra Fund is to:
Inspire young people to learn digital technologies skills through high quality, exciting extracurricular activities, thus expanding the talent pipeline of young people who study technology-related disciplines and ultimately pursue a career in digital technologies.
Primary Objectives:
Increase the overall number of young people learning digital tech skills across Scotland.
Increase diversity and inclusion of young people learning digital tech skills especially among:
audiences from areas often excluded from digital tech activities through lack of local resources or geography (i.e. areas of high deprivation and/or rural isolation).
groups underrepresented in the digital technologies sector (i.e. girls and young women and/or minority groups).
Increase engagement with the industry to better contextualize the skills being learned.
Promote digital technologies as an attractive career path including highlighting the breadth of careers in digital technologies.
Secondary Objectives:
Increase number of young people studying computing science and digital technologies related courses in school.
Increase the number of educational establishments and organisations delivering digital technologies-related activities.
Seek to develop confidence, self-esteem, leadership, and employability skills amongst young people.
Dispel negative perceptions about digital technologies activities and careers.
Funding Information

Round VI (2021/22) will see up to £75,000 worth of grant awards awarded to high-quality, exciting extracurricular digital technologies activities across Scotland.
Eligible organisations can apply for grants from a minimum of £500 to a maximum of £5,000.
Applications over the £5,000 maximum are not eligible and therefore will not be considered.
