INTRODUCING WORLD WOMEN IN NEUROSCIENCE MONTHLY GIVING CIRCLES
Start 2023 with a commitment to sustaining the WWN Initiatives that are most important to you:
CONFERENCE TRAVEL GRANT PROGRAM
Attending and presenting your research at scientific conferences offer opportunities for networking and global recognition. Your gift will be used where it is needed most to ensure that Neuroscientists from under resourced countries can attend national and international scientific meetings.
VISITING SCHOLAR GRANT PROGRAM
Your gift will provide the resources needed to sponsor trainees from under resourced countries to obtain short term training in specific neuroscience techniques to increase their research potential. Funds will be used for travel to host research laboratories, room and board for periods of 2-4 weeks.
COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH NETWORK SEED GRANT PROGRAM
The CRNP program provides seed funding for the establishment of partnerships and collaboration between early- and mid-career women neuroscientists across institutions in under resourced countries. The goal of these partnerships is to foster and accelerate joint submissions for larger federal and non- federal grants to investigate brain disorders and behavior.
PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATION MEMBERSHIP GRANT PROGRAM
Joining a professional organization provides an invaluable wealth of knowledge, resources, and opportunities that you are otherwise missing out on. Many neuroscientists from under resourced countries cannot afford the membership fees to join any professional organization. Your gift will give these scientists access to networking opportunities, exclusive online resources, conferences and educational materials necessary for professional development.
COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT GRANT PROGRAM
Spreading the word about Neuroscience careers and encouraging local communities to value science is essential for capacity building. Your gift will allow neuroscientists from under resourced countries to organize activities such as “Brain awareness month demonstrations”, Brain Bee contests, public health forums for their communities, honoraria for participation in Neuroscience related activities or events, honoraria for guest lectures or presentation of research papers.
