 Research!America recently launched its 2024 summer cycle of the Civic Engagement Microgrant Program, which provides funding of up to $3,000 for student- and postdoc-led civic engagement projects. 

The Research!America Civic Engagement Microgrant Program, generously supported by the Sloan Foundation, provides support for groups led by STEM graduate students, professional students (medical, dental, nursing, pharmacy, etc.), and postdocs to create projects aimed at building dialogue with public officials, community leaders, and local community members around issues of common interest. 

We are seeking applications from groups of graduate students and post-docs for grants to support a wide range of civic engagement activities, including startup funding for new science policy groups, STEM-related events in local communities, and digital media projects. Past grantees have developed initiatives such as podcast series, poster sessions with city council members, K-12 STEM projects, professional development workshops, and much more.

Benefits of participation:

  • Gain experience in science communication, science policy, public engagement.
  • Build skills in program management, grant-writing, and more.
  • Mentoring and workshops from Research!America staff.
  • Connect with program participants from around the country.

The application deadline is April 30, 2024. For more details, visit our information page. Please send questions to
