The AAS hosts and supports professional development programs for wherever you are in your career. The Society provides education-related mentoring and professional-development experiences for fellow members — AAS-EPD Mini-Grant Program — and other professional development and mentoring opportunities such as the AAS Astronomy Ambassadors program.
AAS-EPD Mini-Grant Program
The AAS-EPD mini-grant program will provide direct funding and logistical support for these experiences but will not pay any indirect costs (e.g., overhead). Individual grants will range from $1,000 to $10,000, with a typical amount of approximately $3,500 or less.
The AAS Astronomy Ambassadors program provides professional development and mentoring opportunities, through workshops at AAS meetings, an online community of practice, and access to resources and contacts.
