Public Outreach Grant Overview

The Center has supported public outreach efforts in science and society across the University through collaborations with on-campus and student-organized groups. Starting in 2018-2019, a yearly call for outreach grant proposals has been issued to award funding for projects that:

  • Develop public understanding of issues at the intersection of society and science, technology, and/or medicine;
  • Teach K-12 students about current issues in science and society; or
  • Work with communities to respond to issues that affect or are affected by science

Additionally, the Center seeks to cultivate an interdisciplinary core group of students interested in leading projects around themes of science literacy, diversity, and accessibility.
