The Public Service & Informal Education Grant focuses on supporting literacy in science, engineering, technology, and mathematics for the citizens of New Mexico. We support projects which publicize the vision, mission, and priorities of NASA and the NMSGC programs statewide. Organizations can include astronomy clubs, museums and community organizations. Program content can include demonstration and contests that promote the benefits of space related science, engineering, technology, and mathematics. The grant is intended to supplement, not duplicate, already existing opportunities. As is true with all NMSGC programs, minority and women participation is strongly encouraged. Matching funds are required, these can be in-kind funds. U.S. citizenship is required. This is a one-time award.
