SICB Campaign "Double Your Dues"

New! Double Your Dues to Support Student Research. About half of our 2800 members are students. Many of SICB’s full members and postdocs started in SICB as student members. One of the great benefits to student members is the availability of two special programs that support student research, Grants-in-Aid of Research and Fellowship of Graduate Student Travel. Both of these programs rely on one of our endowed funds and we wish to see this fund grow to better support student research. To this end, we are initiating a donation campaign called “Double Your Dues for Student Support.”

We ask every member of SICB (including and especially students) to support this effort by contributing the equivalent of one year of dues money over the next three years to this campaign. You can contribute a little now and a little later - we will keep track of it. You can always check your dues status by logging on to your member database through the Edit member information link on the homepage.
