The Center for Science and Society at Columbia University is issuing a call for proposals for outreach, service, and other projects that:
- Help boost public understanding of issues involving society and science, technology, and medicine
- Teach K-12 students about current issues in science and society
- Work with communities to respond to issues that affect or are affected by science
To view past awardees, please visit the Public Outreach Grant overview. As part of the Center’s efforts to build an academic space that is more just, equitable, and accessible, and to foster diverse voices and audiences, we ask that each applicant consider how their proposed project may support the Center’s ongoing efforts to promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism in policies, systems, and spaces in science and society. Please visit our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism page as a reference.
For full application requirements, please download the Call for Proposals.
Please send proposals as a single PDF document to [email protected] with “CSS Public Outreach Grant Application” in the subject line of the email.
