Science Cafés

In response to COVID-19, LSAC will not offer the Science Cafe Mini-Grant in 2020. In its place, LSAC will be offering two cycles of the Members Engaging Through Technlogy (METT) Grant. Please visit the METT Grant webpage for more information

Apply for a Science Café Mini-Grant and engage your local section in the Science Café movement.

Science cafés provide a relaxed, open venue for nonscientists and scientists to discuss current topics. By hosting a science café you can help promote scientific literacy within your local community and invigorate your local section about questions of the day with a scientific underpinning.

Apply for a Science Café Mini-Grant - Local Sections can receive funding up to $500.

If you were awarded this mini-grant for your last Science Café, you must send a summary report before applying again.
