Reminder: Only one day left to apply for a grant to CAP 2018
Two types of grants are offered by organizers to provide support in attending the Communicating Astronomy with the Public 2018 Conference in Fukuoka, Japan. The deadline for both of them ends on 15 September.
GRANT 1 – IAU TRAVEL GRANT APPLICATION
There is a limited number of travel grant support provided by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) for colleagues from economically less privileged countries and young scientists/professional communicators.
All grant applicants should submit their oral/poster/workshop contribution before this travel grant application. (A grant application without prior abstract submission will NOT be considered)
Please visit this link for more details about this Grant 1 – IAU Travel Grant Application.
GRANT 2 – JAPANESE TRAVEL GRANT FOR ASIA-PACIFIC SCIENCE COMMUNICATORS
Communicating Astronomy with the Public 2018 (CAP 2018) in Japan will provide a unique opportunity to promote the development and professionalization of science communication in the Asia-Pacific region. A joint effort between the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) and a Japanese crowdfunding campaign will allow support for the attendance of participants from developing countries in the region.
The application is open not only to students and young communicators but to all science professionals whose work can impact the future of Astronomy dissemination and informal outreach in the region. The organizers are paying particular attention to science communicators in developing countries from the Asia-Pacific region. The NAOJ and crowdfunding donors will seek to award grants to next generation of science communicators and provide an opportunity for training to all grant allocated participants.
