NRCan: SCIENCE OUTREACH AND ENGAGEMENT GRANT
In 2017/18, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and the Canadian Association of Science Centres (CASC) conducted a pilot project to connect NRCan’s science and technology activities with communication to Canadians through Science Centres. In the Fall of 2018, the CASC office issued a call for proposal to expand the scope of the 2017/18 program.
For the 2018/19 program, CASC invited proposals from CASC Full Members to obtain a small grant to create new programming or support existing programming that is in line with NRCan objectives.
The office received twelve applications from which four were selected to receive the Science Outreach and Engagement Grant from Natural Resources Canada. A panel of industry peers was selected and collectively reviewed all of the applications.
Through the generous support of The Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS) at Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) each organization was granted $8000.00 to support their programming.
The Science Outreach and Engagement Grant from Natural Resources Canada aimed to:
The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the land on which we learn and live is the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek. We strive for reconciliation by working to transform existing relationships to emphasize open dialogue, mutual understanding and respectful collaborations.
