Science Communication Skills grant (pilot)

Funding your science communication skills training

You may request up to $20,000 in funding for a 1-year period.

You can receive funding only once through this pilot. If you are successful in receiving funding, you will not be eligible to re-apply in a subsequent competition.

You may receive additional funding and in-kind contributions from other sources, which must be detailed in the application.

Grants can be used to cover operational costs, such as salaries, travel, materials, supplies or translation, as long as these are for training in science communication skills. Travel, meals and accommodation for participants in the activity are also an eligible expense. However, grants may not be used to support research.
