AfNWA call for seed grants in support of projects focusing on empowering girls from disadvantaged communities

The African Network of Women in Astronomy (AfNWA), a sub-committee of the African Astronomical Society (AfAS), in collaboration with the AfAS Education and Outreach Committee is opening a call for seed funding to support outreach activities carried out in Africa focused on the use of astronomy and STEM to empower girls living in disadvantaged communities and in difficult circumstances (e.g, in areas affected by past or present conflict, remote and rural areas, non-formal settlements, refugee camps, IDP settlements, out-of-school girls, under-age mothers, etc.). The funding available is in fact “seed funding” with 250 – 300 euros per project. If this funding can support the activities you are carrying out in your communities and/or help you to start new initiatives, please fill in this form and contact us.

Thank you very much for your activities, for caring about your community, and for making our world a better place.

The deadline is January 31, 2024.
