Call for Seed Grants in Support of Cascade Outreach Activities in your Home Community

Attention all Astronomy Ambassadors for Africa!

Are you captivated by the marvels of astronomy and eager to share this fascination with your home community? We’re seeking enthusiastic individuals or small teams to lead astronomy outreach initiatives in their hometowns and become the relatable role models of tomorrow within their communities.

The African Astronomical Society (AfAS) Education and Outreach Committee, in collaboration with the Inter-university Institute for Data-Intensive Astronomy (IDIA) and the IAU General Assembly 2024 (IAU-GA2024), is offering seed funding to support cascade outreach activities across Africa. The seed funding you or your small team apply for will need to support travel and activity resources (up to ZAR 6000.00 per team, or more under exceptional circumstances).
