SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, was founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies.
As part of its education outreach mission, the society welcomes applications for its Education Outreach Grants. Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded in support of optics- and photonics-related education outreach activities. The key criterion in evaluating and ranking applications is the potential to increase optics and photonics awareness among students or the larger community.
Eligible applicants include not-for-profit organizations such as universities, optics centers, science centers, primary and secondary schools, youth clubs, industry associations, and international optical societies.
See the SPIE website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
