NSF Invites News Media to Apply for Opportunity to Report From Antarctica
Application Deadline: May 17, 2013
Proposals sought from media whose audience is children 11-14: visit would occur sometime between October 2013 and January 2014
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is accepting written proposals from media professionals to report on scientific research supported by NSF in Antarctica. In particular, NSF is interested in proposals from media whose work primarily is designed to reach children between the ages of 11 and 14.
Antarctic Artists and Writers Program
Application deadline: May 31, 2013
Through the Antarctic Artists and Writers Program, NSF enables the production of professional-quality literature and art that complement the U.S. Antarctic Program's (USAP) science, engineering, and education programs to increase public understanding of the Antarctic continent, the surrounding oceans, and human activities there, as well as the region's unique geopolitical and other characteristics.
The program provides opportunities for artists and writers-whether promising early career practitioners or those of longstanding professional reputation and accomplishment-to make the observations at USAP research stations and field camps or aboard ships necessary to completing their projects as envisioned and as described in their proposals.
