Community Mini Grants Program
The Atlanta Science Festival is a celebration of local science and technology, facilitating more than 100 exciting events that span more than 70 venues across the metro Atlanta region. In furthering efforts to broaden access to science in communities that are traditionally underrepresented in STEM, ASF has introduced Community Mini Grants for the 2018 Festival season. The goal of the program is to expand the audiences that engage with science by empowering and supporting local groups to run science activities for their constituents through grassroots efforts.
The program offers grants to community groups that reach underrepresented racial/ethnic groups (African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Native or Pacific Islander), people from economically or educationally disadvantaged groups (e.g. low income, first in family to attend college), young people facing adversity, people with a disability, girls, women, and veterans or active military.
