SciStarter and its partners are looking for libraries across the country to join an Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and Moore Foundation funded initiative that will help your library become a community hub for citizen science. Grantees will receive financial support to purchase materials to build citizen science kits and individualized guidance on how to partner with your community to broaden participation in citizen science.
Selected Partner Libraries will receive:
-$1600 stipend to support the creation of citizen science kits
-Ongoing support through community meetings
-Access to a national network of community-based organizations
Grant applications are now being accepted from public library partners serving communities underrepresented in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) for participation from September 2021 - April 2022.
Applications are due by 5:00pm Pacific / 8:00pm Eastern on July 23, 2021. To view the application and apply, please visit SciStarter.org/library-network. We strongly recommend attending the Application Webinar prior to applying.
