Request for grant proposals

The Penn State Center for Human Evolution and Diversity (CHED) invites proposals for small grants for innovative, multidisciplinary education projects promoting public knowledge about human evolution, modern human diversity, the evolution of health and disease in humans, and the nature and future of human-environment interactions. Successful projects will showcase research conducted at Penn State, including but not limited to research previously supported by CHED, through a series of short (about 10 minute) podcasts. Applicants may propose the creation of one or two podcasts representing their research. Ten to 15 successful awards, of $2,000 each, will be disbursed to the University research accounts of the successful applicants.
