The European Geosciences Union (EGU) offer grants up to €1500 to celebrate and recognise excellent science communication in the Earth, planetary and space sciences. Grants are open to EGU members.

EGU's scheme funds three applicants who are judged to have proposed the most innovative and effective project. Each grant of €1500 is to help further develop the idea and put it into practice.

Grant winners will receive one free registration to attend the EGU General Assembly the year following the receipt of their grant, to present on their projects.

There are no restrictions on the format of the applicant’s project or proposed activity. If you have an idea for a comic, podcast, documentary, set of experiments, or some other form of effective science communication that you want to promote, you are welcome to apply.

Please note that, to apply for the grants, you need an active EGU membership and are encouraged to register to attend the forthcoming EGU General Assembly.

The grants are for a period of 12 months and are awarded in full in September each year. After six months the winners are expected to submit an interim report on their projects, which will be evaluated by the EGU Outreach Committee. 

Past and present grant winners

Deadline is 17 June 2022.
