Diversity, equity, and inclusion grants for trainees
The CEMB is proud to fund DEI-themed events, programs, projects, or initiatives led by CEMB trainees. To receive up to $1500 in funding, please submit a 1-page MAX project proposal to email@example.com. Proposals should include the goals of the project, project description, and a brief budget justification (what will these funds be used toward?) After completion of the funded project, awardees will be expected to provide outcomes data in a summary report.
Examples of past funded projects include:
Black Queer Town Hall in STEM
Organized by CEMB trainee Ryan Daniels (Mauck lab), in collaboration with the CEMB, University of Pennsylvania, University of Iowa, and Black Queer Town Hall, this four-day conference sought to increase Black Queer scientists’ visibility worldwide, discuss Black Queer scientists’ adversities in and out of lab, and increase Black Queer representation in STEM and foster community among Black Queer scientists. More information on the background, motivation, and program is published in Ryan’s Cell article.
