Public Interest Technology University Network Grant Program Info Session

The Public Interest Technology University Network’s annual Network Challenge funding program is open for submissions. The Network Challenge seeks to encourage new ideas, foster collaborations, and incentivize resource- and information-sharing among network members. The broad goal is to fund projects that help train a new generation of graduates who have both technological literacy and a rigorous foundation to navigate the societal, ethical, legal, policy, and equity implications of technology by offering a systematic way of studying technology as a tool for
addressing social problems in the world.

One year project funding is available in three tranches: up to $45,000, up to $90,000 and up to $180,000.  Applications are open to all PIs on UCSC Campus. An initial campus limited submission process will select up to three projects that will be submitted to the network committee. For more information, join us for a Zoom Info Session, Tuesday, May 12th from 3:00 – 4:00 PM. Please RSVP at:
