The SAS Science Outreach Initiative provides:

  • Personal consultation with Penn researchers 
    SOI staff are available to aid all Penn researchers, including faculty, post-docs and graduate students, in preparing grant proposals with an “outreach” or “broader impacts” component, particularly with, but not limited to, the National Science Foundation.
  • A bridge to connect research projects with existing Penn outreach efforts 
    Let us direct you to existing outreach programs at Penn that match your abilities and interests! Our staff are skilled at identifying previous activities that may qualify as outreach and can help weave these efforts into ongoing research and outreach plans.
  • Innovative approaches to outreach
    In this competitive funding environment, outreach is more than hiring interns!  With our combined experiences, our staff is equipped to develop new and innovative ways to meet your outreach requirements while meeting your own interests, abilities, budget limits, and time-constraints.
