Do I have to be a member of the Science Festival Alliance to apply?
Yes, currently your team must be affiliated with either a member Festival or an organization that is a major collaborator with a member Festival to apply to Science in Vivo.
Can my team apply if we weren’t involved in the Science in Vivo phase one?
Yes, these applications are open to all science engagement teams, regardless of past participation.
Why do we have to split the funds we receive with a community organization?
In order for your project to be a success, you will need to ask a community partner to put in significant work.
What does observation and critique entail?
A section on our About page describes this process further. It is an involved process that will require your support, but Science In Vivo staff will do all of the logistical work that we can to make this painless and rewarding. We understand that event organizers are busy during events!
Do I need to have identified a community collaborator when I apply?
Yes – however, Science in Vivo project staff are available to help you identify and reach out to community organizations in your area ahead of the application date. Please submit an expression of intent for more information, and plan on attending application workshops.
