Through your purchases at Uwingu, you support all kinds of space exploration projects… from those pursued by astronomers and planetary scientists to educators inspiring kids in the classroom.
After paying expenses, we will devote our proceeds to The Uwingu Fund. This fund will provide grants to scientists, educators and other around the world to conduct exciting space exploration, research and education projects.
Such a public participation fund has never existed… until now!
Grant applications will begin to be taken in mid-2013!
Individual researchers, amateur astronomers, educators, colleges, universities and companies will be eligible for Uwingu grants. Information about our first proposal solicitation will be released in mid-2013. Experts will review all proposals and make grant awards, which will include travel grants, salaried fellowships, and small-to-large project grants.
