Let’s Talk About Water Challenge Grant Program

Deadline: November 2, 2018
CUAHSI’s Let’s Talk About Water Challenge Grant program supports universities in the development of their own Let’s Talk About Water (LTAW) science outreach events. LTAW events use a film screening and panel discussion to catalyze conversation between water science experts and the public. The Challenge Grant program is awarded on a dollar for dollar matching basis – meaning that CUAHSI matches funds raised by the event organizers (up to $3,000).
