Broadening Participation Travel Awards are intended to allow students, post-docs, and faculty members from a variety of underrepresented groups to attend the SICB annual meeting, by helping to defray the costs of travel, lodging, and registration. The goal of the BP committee is to increase the diversity of SICB and the field of integrative biology at all career stages, in terms of gender, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, ability/disability, and socioeconomic background.
Broadening Participation Travel Awards for the 2022 SICB meeting are partially funded by a generous donation from the Gans Collections and Charitable Fund Inc., a foundation established by renowned vertebrate morphologist and functional anatomist Carl Gans. To learn more about the foundation and additional opportunities for conference travel grants, please visit http://carlgans.org.
The Broadening Participation Travel Award 2022 application will be posted here soon.
