The Knowledge Chapter of the Awesome Foundation is accepting applications! We promote projects that bridge the gap between research & real life. In other words, projects that enthuse and inform about science or nature, or that implement research findings in practice. This can be in any discipline, from history to quantum mechanics and from civil engineering to psychology.
We give out $500-$1,000 micro-grants once a month. This can include science communication, research translation, prototyping and implementation, and digital design and publication.
Our one constraint: we are a global chapter, and supported work should be available online under a free license or otherwise open to your entire community. If you are organizing an awesome local event or science project, or building a local lab space, please describe how you will share this with the world, so that others can replicate it or learn from it.
We do not give grants to subsidize commercial works, personal education of the grantee, or travel to conferences. We also do not give grants to individual classroom projects, small-group mentoring, or one-time events -- unless the process also produces awesome records that can be shared online. :)
