Proposal Support for Faculty on Broader Impacts and Outreach

Staff of the Science Outreach Initiative (SOI) which was launched in November 2011 are available for personal consultation and assistance to those interested in preparing grant proposals with an outreach or broader impacts component.

  • Science Outreach Initiative Staff contact information and details of the additional support offered by SOI can be found at the website.
  • For an extensive, searchable list of outreach programs in which faculty from across the University already participate, see the SOI Program Matrix.
  • A list of Penn faculty who are currently funded by the NSF can be found here: Penn NSF Awards.

The NSF CAREER program (Faculty Early Career Development Program) requires a particularly strong education component, which often involves extensive outreach.
