EarthLab is thrilled to announce the release of the 2021 EarthLab Innovation Grants Program Request for Proposals (RFP). This year, we’re looking to fund projects that demonstrate co-creation and partnership between community partners and University of Washington researchers, interdisciplinary collaboration, action at the intersection of climate (both mitigation and adaptation) & social justice, and the potential for growth of the project or partnership.
The Innovation Grants Program has $300,000 available for the current funding cycle, with a maximum budget request of $75,000 per project. Please see the attached fact sheet about the Innovation Grants Program and share freely with others in your networks. Letters of Intent are due January 27, 2022, at 5 p.m. PT.
We are hosting an in-person information session on Tuesday, October 5, 2021, from 4-5 p.m. PT at the Intellectual House, located on the UW Seattle Campus. Additional information sessions for the UW Tacoma and UW Bothell campuses will be held virtually at the end of October. Details about these sessions as well as office hours and the full RFP are available on our website at: http://bit.ly/2021ELGrants.
