Broadening Participation Professional Development Awards are intended to help students, post-docs, and faculty members from underrepresented groups attend the SICB annual meeting by defraying travel, lodging, and registration costs. Up to $500 may be requested by individuals attending the in-person meeting in Austin, and up to $300 may be requested by individuals attending via the SICB+. We seek to support returning SICB attendees as well as first-time SICB attendees.

Submit an application via this online form by October 24, 2022. Decisions will be made on or around November 18, 2022. Preference is given to applicants who are presenting in either the in-person or SICB+ formats; however, SICB attendees who are not presenting are also eligible for awards.
