The National Academy of Sciences, with support from the Rita Allen Foundation, is pleased to offer two awards of $37,500 each to support the formation and development of collaborative science communication researcher-practitioner partnerships. These awards are intended to facilitate the efforts of science communication researchers and practitioners to plan collaborative projects that pursue shared research interests aligned with the recently released consensus report, Communicating Science Effectively: A Research Agenda.

Those receiving awards will present details about their collaborations at a special session of the Arthur M. Sackler Colloquium on the Science of Science Communication III to be held on November 16-17, 2017.  Additional support for the Colloquium is provided by the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania and the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.

To apply for these awards, researchers and practitioners who have agreed to work in partnership should submit a proposal by June 1, 2017. Visit the colloquium website for more details.

Please consider applying for or sharing this information with researchers and practitioners who you believe would be interested in applying for these awards.
