We’ve posted frequently on the negative effects (ie fraud) resulting from the current hyper-competitive nature of the American science enterprise. From the ASCB COMPASS blog, another thoughtful perspective on how hyper-competition may be influencing science.
The ASCB COMPASS (Committee for Postdocs and Students) is offering several awards and opportunities to show off your talents! Win up to $500 with the “Share your Science” video contest or Comic Strip Contest.
Additionally, if you have great outreach ideas, apply for up to $1,000 with the Outreach Grant.
These are great opportunities for scientists to communicate with the community, show off their creativity, and display their passion for science. For a full list of awards, go here.
