Thanks for your interest in the AAS-EPD Mini-Grant Program. Through this program, which is funded by the AAS Board of Trustees, the AAS Education Committee will support US-based AAS members in providing education-related mentoring and professional-development experiences for fellow members. Suitable venues for such experiences include (but are not limited to) AAS and Division meetings, college and university campuses, museums, planetariums, observatories, and online webinars and hangouts. The AAS-EPD mini-grant program will provide both direct funding and indirect logistical support for these experiences.
