Affiliated Fair Emergency Need and COVID-19 Transition Fund 2020-2021

Through the Affiliated Fair Emergency Need and COVID-19 Transition Fund, Society for Science & the Public (Society) will make a limited number of one-time grants to address changes to fair operations brought on by COVID-19 and the ever evolving virtual, in-person and hybrid possibilities of managing your 2021 fair. These funds may also support middle-school or junior divisions of affiliated fairs that might otherwise be cancelled.

The Society is committed to providing immediate support to as many affiliated fairs as possible. We are providing grants of up to $10,000 on a rolling basis based on demonstrated need. Priority will be given to fairs that demonstrate a commitment to outreach to under-served populations and inclusive practices to ensure their fair represents the diversity of their territory.
