The AAS Committee on the Status of Minorities in Astronomy (CSMA) Micro-Grants Program is accepting applications! The Micro-Grants Program sponsors Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), and other students who are suffering from the effects of financial scarcity. Yearly through 2023, the program will offer ~10 one-time grants of at least $500 each to support BIPOC undergraduates to pay graduate school application fees, GRE testing fees, and other expenses associated with applying to graduate programs in astronomy or physics. The 2023 Micro-Grants Program applications opened on 28 August and will close on 13 October. Information for the program and the applicant portal can be found on this earlier post.
