NASA SCoPE Supports Early Career Scientists with Proposal Writing Workshop
The NASA SMD Community of Practice for Education (SCoPE) hosted an informational webinar in March to support applicants for the inaugural NASA SCoPE Seed Grants. This min-grant program endeavors to reduce barriers for subject matter experts (SMEs) to engage in science communications with the public. To achieve this goal, early career scientists are asked to submit a collaborative proposal with a Science Activation project that requests funding support for their engagement. In preparation for these submissions, the SCoPE team provides training and templates that support SME career development.
Early career SMEs and those from historically marginalized communities have been specifically encouraged to apply and will be prioritized in selections. These grants are one way in which the NASA SCoPE project is increasing the breadth and depth of SME engagement with the NASA Science Activation Network.
