Major Project Support

  • AGU is offering Celebrate 100 Grants to showcase the value of Earth and space science and its impact on society. Projects should raise awareness of the discovery-to-solutions aspects of the sciences. Activities, events, programs, online interactions, etc., can be oriented to the public and showcase science and its impacts and applicability, or these activities can engage colleagues in the Earth and space science community to encourage collaboration, sharing of knowledge, network building, and more. Choose the category that best aligns with the project's goals.
  • To Apply

    Financial support is strictly for the reimbursement of expenses in executing a Centennial-related engagement project. Major AGU Celebrate 100 Grants for this support range from $1001 to $10,000 total. Entries will be judged by a panel of Earth and space scientists and nonscientists who will evaluate projects on the basis of criteria listed on the Centennial Project Support home page. The criteria of innovation, impact, duration, and collaboration will be positively weighted during the judging process.
