SEATTLE -- ResearchChannel is helping to document the important work of world-class researchers while bringing that work to millions through its television and Internet platforms. The second Matching Funds Production Program will provide funding to produce videos on a range of research topics.
The program enables accredited universities and nonprofit research institutions to share their research through video production, especially those that would not have sufficient funds to do so otherwise. The program aims to raise public awareness of the value of research, and contribute to and support public knowledge of, familiarity with, and thinking about major issues and discoveries that affect our lives and futures.
"We had a terrific response to our first-ever Matching Funds program last year," said Amy Philipson, executive director, ResearchChannel. "We are thrilled to offer this program again this year and look forward to bringing exciting and vital, new research developments to the public."
Last year, the Matching Funds program gave grants to a diverse group of institutions for a wide range of important research programs. Winners included Montana State University, the University of Nevada (Las Vegas), the American Meteorological Society, the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
