Citizen Science Competitive Funding Program
Thank you for your interest in the Forest Service Citizen Science Competitive Funding Program (CitSci Fund). UPDATE: Applications are due December 5, 2019 at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time. For detailed Instructions and Frequently Asked Questions, visit the program webpage: https://www.fs.fed.us/working-with-us/citizen-science/competitive-funding-program.
The Citizen Science Toolkit - Project Planning Guide, is a good resource as you fill out the application with useful information such as a partnership agreement decision tree and Forest Service volunteer information: https://www.fs.fed.us/working-with-us/citizen-science/citizen-science-toolkit.
For questions or comments contact Michelle Tamez, Crowdsourcing and Citizen Science Coordinator, at SM.FS.FSCCS@USDA.GOV with subject line: “CitSci Fund Question” or 202-205-1194.
Please note that this is a highly competitive program; we receive many more applications than we are able to fund. Awardees will be announced in mid-late February on the webpage: https://www.fs.fed.us/working-with-us/citizen-science.
