MIT Press launches crowdfunding effort

This month, in conjunction with MIT’s 24-Hour Challenge on 3.14/Pi Day, the MIT Press is launching our Public Understanding of Science initiative

This month the MIT Press launches a new Public Understanding of Science initiative, which will support our efforts to mobilize cutting edge science and research for greater social impact through writing excellence. By providing academic scientists and first-time book authors with the support needed to make their ideas optimally impactful and accessible to general readers, policy makers, and the media, we create a platform to build a public understanding of science. 

Our goal is to raise $15,000 from more than 100 donations by March 23, 2023.  If we are successful, we will unlock a $10,000 gift from an anonymous donor.
