Sigma Xi Student and Postdoc Members Invited to Apply for Bipartisan Candidate Engagement Funds

Sigma Xi is pleased to support grants that will help graduate student- and postdoc-led science policy groups increase their civic engagement and outreach activities to candidates running for national office in the 2018 midterm elections in order to elevate the importance of scientific research. 

This nonpartisan initiative is led by Research!America, as part of the National Science Policy Network's microgrant program, to which Sigma Xi is providing funding. Research!America will accept and review the proposals, and announce the selections in late August.
