About This Grant

We are seeking proposals from atmospheric science, meteorology, and climate change researchers. Field work, software, data analyses, modeling, sampling, visualizations, human-environment interactions, interdisciplinary work -- it all fits if it's related to the atmosphere. Please get in touch with our team if you're interested, but unsure about whether your idea would work as an Experiment campaign for this challenge.

We will select roughly 15 projects to join the Weather Challenge Grant Program. Each project will run as an individual crowdfunding campaign. The projects will all launch on the same day for 30 days. 

In the 3rd week the Experiment project that has the most backers will receive an additional $1,000 grant. The two runner up projects will receive $250 each.

How It Works

Challenge grants are sponsored prizes. We will accept proposals for campaigns related to weather, and all the campaigns will launch together on August 15th, 2016. The project with the highest number of backers after the third week will receive an additional $1,000. There are two runners-up prizes of $250 each.
