TESI Grants for Education & Outreach
In September 2018, TESI launched its inaugural education and outreach grants program. The program provides opportunities for UF undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral associates to develop outreach projects that share Earth systems science with TESI’s key audiences. Since then TESI has awarded 11 grants focused on topics ranging from seagrass to climate change to horticulture.
