I'm particularly excited about this – $$ for creative science stories! Details here and below. -Mia
PRX is excited to announce a new competition for audio production funding.
We call this the STEM Story Project, focusing on science, technology, engineering and math.
The Sloan Foundation is making this possible. We have a pool of $40,000 to distribute among multiple projects.
PRX has a lot of experience in conducting these sorts of open calls. Our goals with the STEM Story Project are to:
* unleash highly creative, scientifically-accurate original productions
* educate and excite listeners
* tell stories and explain STEM issues in new ways
We want these productions to be heard and shared widely. So, proposals need to appeal both to stations and directly to listeners. You'll find a lot more details about the PRX STEM Story Project here: application and guidelines [https://prx.submittable.com/submit/19932].
The deadline for applications is April 22, 2013 at 11:59PM ET.

P.S. If you applied to our Global Story Project, please read the guidelines for STEM carefully — we've changed some things.
