The NISE Net launched a series of online brown-bag conversations focused on helping partners share their work and learn from others in the Network. The aim of the online brown-bag conversations is to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners, create more channels for Network partners to learn from each other directly, and create ways for you to follow-up on ideas or efforts that emerge at in-person meetings.
Mini-Grants 2014 Brainstorming and Guidelines
August 13, 2013
10 - 11 am PDT/1 - 2 pm EDT
Eli Bossin of the Museum of Science, Boston
Christina Akers of the Science Museum of Minnesota
Have a great idea that you want to turn into a NISE Network mini-grant project? You're not alone! We average 70 applications for the mini-grants program each year, and each year it becomes more difficult to choose projects to pursue with such a high-quality submission pool. Please join us for a brainstorming session for the 2014 mini-grant application cycle. We will discuss the mini-grant program and offer you the opportunity to converse among colleagues and your regional hub leader about your project ideas. We welcome previous mini-grant awardees with advice for future applicants to also join in this conversation. Bring your ideas, proposals and suggestions, and get ready to discuss how to refine your ideas for the strongest project application possible!
Disclaimer: Participation in this workshop is by no means a guarantee of funding. All 2014 mini-grant applications will be judged by merit and eligibility, without consideration to participation in this or any other program or dialog.
