ASCB Committee for Postdocs and Students (COMPASS) Outreach Grants
Committee for Postdocs and Students (COMPASS) Outreach Grants are intended to provide funds to ASCB members to promote science outreach projects–like visits to labs for students, organizing science fairs, or any other ideas for engaging the public. In order for government funding of science to continue, we scientists must help people understand the importance of our work. For this reason, COMPASS is pleased to announce Grants for Outreach. These grants, of up to $1,000, will help ASCB members engage with local schools, science fairs, and society. We want to help you promote research, get the public excited about cell biology and improve the perception of scientists in your own local efforts. The grant can be used for food and refreshments, materials, equipment, books or brochures, transportation, prizes, etc.
To apply for this outreach grant, you must be an active ASCB member, with priority given to Student and Postdoc members. Moreover, your event will have the support of a COMPASS member, who will be a liaison between you and the ASCB.
Deadline: Sept 1. For more information, past winners, and to apply: http://www.ascb.org/compass-outreach-grants/
