Now accepting 2013 HOPES Grant applications

May 21, 2013 -- The society is now accepting applications for the 2013 Hands-on Opportunities to Promote Engagement in Sciences (HOPES) seed grants.  The goal of the HOPES seed grants is to incentivize and support the development of outreach programs and partnerships by teachers and researchers.  Ten grants of up to $2,000 each will be awarded to teams consisting of one or more Junior High/High School teacher(s) (or other K-12 educator) and one or more university, college, or institutional (e.g. NIH, NSF, USDA) research scientist(s). While participants of the April 20, 2013 workshop in Boston will be afforded preference, all applications from interested teachers and research scientists will be considered.

All applications are due June 21, 2013.  Award announcements will be made on or after July 22. For application instructions, go to:
