Code for Science and Society is thrilled to announce its third cohort of Event Fund grant recipients!
See the full list on the Event Fund blog.
The CS&S Event Fund is a community-advised fund established in 2019 to support inclusive and accessible events in data science, including machine learning, open data, and artificial intelligence. Event Fund has now awarded over $525,000 USD to three cohorts of grantees representing 37 organizing teams hailing from 27 countries across five continents. Grantees report that the Event Fund helped them lower barriers to participation, connect actors across the open data science community and draw more people into the field. Multiple awardees have gone on to receive substantive financial support from other sources as a result of their Event Fund-supported work.
This program is made possible because of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation (https://doi.org/10.37807/GBMF8449), Wellcome, and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. We thank the Event Fund Advisory Committee, Selection Committee, and funding partners for their support.
Please join us in congratulating the 2022 cohort of Event Fund grantees and stay tuned for our next call for applications! To stay up to date, join our mailing list.
