2018 SICB Meeting

The Gans Collections and Charitable Fund, Inc. is happy to announce that we are financially supporting Broadening Participation Travel Awards to attend the January 3-7, 2018 Annual Meeting of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology in San Francisco, CA.

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.

In order to apply for an award one must be a member of SICB.


Completed applications must be received by October 20, 2017.
