Subject: Financial aid available: reach millions with your expertise… become a Wiki Scientist!

Did you know that by adding to Wikipedia, you have the power to share your expertise with millions of readers? 

When we educate the public we help them understand and value science. But they can't apply scientific knowledge to solve the world's problems without high quality information access. You can help by meeting people where they're already getting information – on Wikipedia. 

Even though Wikipedia is for everyone, the process of creating and adding to pages can feel like learning to read and write music. Our expert guides can show you the way in our Living Knowledge training course that is specially designed to increase public understanding of biology.
