    Dear colleagues,

    Greetings from APN Secretariat!

    We are pleased to inform you that APN is calling for proposals or applications to a new grant titled "Funding Opportunity for Early-Career Science Communicators" until 16 August 2019, Friday.

    This communicator support grant aims to (1) promote collaboration between journalists or media practitioners and scientists/researchers and (2) disseminate scientific outputs in the form of non-scientific materials. The grant will provide an opportunity for early-career science communicators to promote concrete policy-relevant issues and challenges and opportunities towards global change and sustainability.

    Eligible products should be drawn from APN funded outputs and should enable the general public and policymakers easily understand and capture the policy-relevant issues and key messages derived from completed and ongoing collaborative research and capacity building projects in the region. Successful candidates will be given a small grant of up to USD 5,000 for producing and disseminating the communication product. 

    We would highly appreciate if you could further disseminate this announcement among interested colleagues in your institutions and networks, especially to early-career science and research communicators. Once again, the deadline for receiving applications is on 16 August 2019. For full details and eligibility information, please visit:  Funding Opportunity for Early-Career Science Communicators  
    Thank you very much and should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact

    Best regards,
    Christmas de Guzman
