Purpose: “One Small Step” grants are designed to fill gaps in the area of space history. Applications from individuals and organizations are accepted throughout the year, whenever the need presents. We seek proposals where $250-$1,000 could make a real difference—ideas such as digitizing historical documents, collecting an oral history, creating podcasts, or filling gaps at the Space Business & Commerce Archives.
Grant amount: $250-$1,000 USD
Application Due and Review Dates: Applications will be reviewed throughout the year on a rolling basis, there is no formal deadline. Urgent requests may be fast-tracked at the discretion of the Board.
Eligible Applicants: This program is open to individuals and institutions, domestic or foreign.
Types of Projects: SPACE 3.0 is seeking a wide variety of proposals, and applicants should not limit themselves to the types of projects listed as examples. That said, proposed projects must relate to space history and be consistent with the mission of SPACE 3.0. The Foundation will not fund scholarships or support attendance at conferences/events through this grant program.
In addition to the merits of the proposal itself, we will consider whether the funded activity is definable and fills a gap, if the award would be impactful, and how any resulting materials would be preserved.
Application contents: Applications should be one to five pages in length. To be considered, your proposal must include the following:
