AppSciComm was one of four winners of this year's NASW Peggy Girshman Idea Grant.
We will receive $4,700 to organize an Appalachian regional science workshop in Pittsburgh for science communicators across the region. The one-day workshop will include professional development as well as research-orientated sessions that are particularly relevant to the Appalachian region.
Our hope is that the workshop will catalyze the group’s growth and participation by giving us an opportunity to meet each other, discuss issues relevant to our membership, and attract new members.
The grant money will support scholarships for some attendees, among other logistical costs.
