IBRO/Dana Brain Awareness Week (BAW) Grants aim to educate the public about the benefits of neuroscience research and increase awareness about the wonders of the brain by increasing opportunities for outreach and awareness campaigns in regions challenged by a lack of resources, support and/or public understanding about the brain.

These grants are generously supported by funding from the Dana Foundation.

About Brain Awareness Week (BAW)

Brain Awareness Week is the global campaign to foster public enthusiasm and support for brain science. Every March, partners host imaginative activities in their communities that share the wonders of the brain and the impact brain science has on our everyday lives. Brain Awareness Week was founded by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives (DABI) and the European Dana Alliance for the Brain (EDAB), and is coordinated by the Dana Foundation.


Brain Awareness Week Grants 2025

The proposed projects organized for Brain Awareness Week may take place in countries anywhere outside of Europe. It is not a requirement that they take place during the official Brain Awareness Week. However, they must support, promote and run under the title of the global Brain Awareness Week campaign.

For more information, inspiration and resources, see the Brain Awareness Week website.
