  •     $10,000 to Child ViSion, an organization that helps the fight the impact of poor vision on the educational, quality of life and economic potential of young people by distributing self-adjustable glasses, based on a fluid-filled lens technology, through school-based programs in Africa
  •     $2,500 to Active Learning in Optics and Photonics (ALOP) for workshops introducing basic optics and photonics concepts to teachers in developing countries by pairing theoretical modules with hands-on applications and using low-cost locally available materials. ALOP is supported on an ongoing basis by SPIE, ICTP (the International Centre for Theoretical Physics) and UNESCO.
  • SPIE provided $3.2 million in support of education and outreach programs in 2013, meeting both its educational mission as well as the desire of its members to give back to the community. SPIE members rate the ability to contribute to the optics and photonics community among the four most valuable benefits of membership in the society.

    The deadline for the next round of SPIE Education Outreach Grants is 31 January.

    More information about SPIE’s innovative resources for educators and students is online at http://www.spie.org/x30114.xml.
