Announcement of Opportunity: AAS Education & Professional Development (AAS-EPD) Mini-Grant Program (Deadline Extended)
The AAS Education Committee is now accepting applications to 2023 Cycle 6.A of the AAS Education & Professional Development (AAS-EPD) Mini-Grant Program for funds to support education and professional development activities for AAS members. Complete proposals for activities that will take place October 2022 – December 2023 and are submitted by 11:59pm ET on Friday, 19 August 2022, will receive full consideration; proposals submitted after that deadline may or may not be considered, subject to the availability of funds.
Suitable venues for such experiences include (but are not limited to) AAS and Division meetings, college and university campuses, museums, planetariums, observatories, and online webinars and hangouts. The AAS-EPD mini-grant program will provide direct funding and logistical support for these experiences but will not pay any indirect costs (e.g., overhead). Individual grants will range from $1,000 to $10,000, with a typical amount of approximately $3,500 or less.
