A program to support those who would like to promote gateways for research and education

Calling all researchers and educators! Are you interested in...

  • Sharing with others how the use of a gateway has changed your work?
  • Learning how to use your gateway of choice more effectively?
  • Training others on the use of your gateway of choice?
  • Presenting your experience of using a gateway for education?
  • Changing how gateway development is approached at a high level?

SGCI is piloting a Science Ambassadors program that will provide travel support for those interested in promoting the use of gateways in research or education or in training others in the use of a gateway. Funding is restricted to US scientists, but not US conferences. Five ambassadors per year will receive $1200 each in travel support to either:

  • Attend a domain conference where they promote the use of gateways for research by presenting results achieved through the use of a gateway.
  • Attend a gateway training event to learn how to use a gateway more effectively or learn how to teach others to use a gateway.
  • Promote the use of a gateway in education.

SGCI can also help gateway creators with the organization and promotion of online training sessions for gateways.

Ambassadors are expected to contribute a blog post (1000-1500 words) to SGCI’s website about their experience. This one-year term (from February 1, 2019, to January 31, 2020) will include two virtual meetings during which ambassadors advise SGCI leadership on higher-level gateway needs from a researcher’s or educator’s perspective.

Apply for the 2019 program by Monday, January 16, 2019.
