Unidata offers computer equipment grants to support a variety of projects
The Unidata Program Center is pleased to announce the opening of the 2020 Unidata
Community Equipment Awards solicitation. Created under the sponsorship of
the National Science Foundation, Unidata equipment awards are intended to
encourage new members from diverse disciplinary backgrounds in the geosciences
to join the Unidata community, and to encourage existing members to continue
their active participation, enhancing the community process. For 2020, a
total of $100,000 is available for awards; proposals for amounts up to $20,000
will be considered.
In keeping with Unidata's most recent proposal to the National Science Foundation for
continued program funding, additional emphasis will be placed on providing support for
institutions serving populations that are underrepresented in the broad geoscience
community. Unidata is dedicated to broadening participation by minority serving
institutions, and we particularly encourage small institutions, academic departments that
have not previously submitted proposals to this program, and programs outside Unidata's
traditional atmospheric sciences community to apply.
