SARA Student and Teacher Project Grants
The Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers has voted to appropriate $6,000 in support of student projects in the 2016-2017 fiscal year. This will be divided up into several smaller grants of no more than $200 each to ensure that the money reaches the largest number of students. Preference will be given to students 5th grade through college and to new and innovative ideas. UPDATE: Teachers are now eligible to apply for grants to bring radio astronomy to the classroom.
