Overview:

The Society for the Study of Evolution was founded in March, 1946. The objectives of the Society for the Study of Evolution are the promotion of the study of organic evolution and the integration of the various fields of science concerned with evolution. The Society publishes the scientific journal Evolution and holds annual meetings in which scientific findings on evolutionary biology are presented and discussed.

Small Grants Program for Local and Regional Outreach Promoting the Understanding of Evolutionary Biology

This is a call for proposals for support for local and regional educational outreach activities to take place during 2018. It is our hope that these projects will lead to ongoing outreach collaboration in future years. 

We expect to fund in the range of 10-20 applications. 

Examples of past outreach activities have included public lectures, exhibits, student competitions, and professional development events for teachers. We especially encourage proposals that focus on discussing and implementing evolution education reforms recommended in the Vision & Change in Undergraduate Biology Education: Chronicling Change, Inspiring the Future (2013) report or on dialogues between undergraduate instructors and K-12 teachers around the new emphasis on evolution in the AP Biology Curriculum Framework (2015) and the Next Generation Science Standards.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
