The Paleontological Society Outreach and Education Grant provides support to our members for programs and activities involving educational out reach and community engagement. Potential fundable projects include, but are not limited to, field trips to fossil sites and/or museums for teachers and pre-college students, educator training and curriculum development, participation in local community initiatives, development of educational materials for classroom use, and website or other online material development.
The subject matter covered by outreach proposals may fall within any sub-discipline of paleontology/paleobiology. Particularly encouraged are projects that (1) include opportunities for undergraduate students to become involved in paleontological outreach to younger students or the public, (2) create new educational “apps” or other technologies, and/or (3) produce educational materials that could be distributed more widely through the PS website.
Prior recipients of a PS Outreach and Education Grant must wait one year before being eligible to submit another application (e.g., a 2016 grant recipient must wait until 2018 to submit another proposal). Prior recipients must also submit their required final report on the funded project before being eligible to apply for a second award.
Amount of Grant
The Paleontological Society will issue grants of up to $2,500 each; the number of awards to be made is flexible.
Deadline: March 2nd
Recipients will be notified May 4th
Grantees are required to submit a follow-up project report by March of the next year
Who May Apply?
Applicants must be members of the Paleontological Society at the time of application. Graduate student applicants should provide documentation of a professional member’s willingness to serve as advisor for the project.
