The IBRO Diversity Grants program awards neuroscience societies or event organizers from the Asia-Pacific, Africa, Latin-American and Pan-European regions with grants for activities or events that promote regional and gender diversity in neuroscience.

IBRO’s core values aim to serve the global neuroscience community through the promotion of diversity, equity, and inclusion in neuroscience research. In alignment with this vision, the IBRO Diversity Grants seek to support events that prioritize and foster regional and gender diversity in neuroscience. This program specifically targets neuroscience societies and other event organizers.

Applicants interested in applying to this funding program are encouraged to address the unique needs prevalent in their region and/or country. IBRO acknowledges the fact that cultural, socio-economic and infrastructural contexts shape the practice of neuroscience globally and encourages applicants to craft proposals tailored to address these unique diversity challenges.

Funds will be transferred according to an 80:20 format. This means that 80% of the grant will be awarded two months prior to the start date of the event, whereas the remaining 20% will be processed upon completion of the event and submission of the required grant report.

Applications dates:
