E-SWAN Education and Outreach Grants

E-SWAN is delighted to announce the launching of the E-SWAN Education and Outreach Grants! The grants are awarded to E-SWAN members who develop and organise an outreach, education or training project that aims to raise awareness of space weather and space climate among scientists,  non-scientists, relevant industries, students, children, or the general public.

This opportunity is in the frame of E-SWAN's mission to promote education, advanced training and outreach and raise awareness in the field of Space Weather and Space Climate.


There are no restrictions on the format of the applicant’s project or activity. We welcome any outreach, science communication, education, and training project, including:

  • event organisation,
  • educational materials or training development,
  • social media and citizen science projects,
  • podcast, documentaries and video realisations,
  • games, and others.

Please note that to apply for the grants, you need to be an active E-SWAN member.

In case of event organisation, the event must not overlap with the ESWW (from one week before to one week after, unless it is conveniently accessible from the ESWW premises).

Financial and other support

The E-SWAN Public Engagement and Outreach Grant includes:


The successful applicants must

  • acknowledge the financial support provided by E-SWAN during their event or in the materials they develop
  • submit a short report suitable for (blog) publication
    • either within three months after the date of the event,
    • or after six months of running the project

The successful applicant is encouraged to present the outcomes of their project at one of the ESWWs.


For events taking place in 2023, evaluation and selection will be on a first-come, first-served principle.

Starting in 2024, the evaluation and decision on the received proposals will take place twice a year in April and October, with deadlines for submission at the end of March and September.  We will start reviewing in October 2023 applications for activities taking place in 2024.
