New Grants to Increase Public Interest in Brain Science

IBRO_Dana_BAW_2020The International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) and the Dana Foundation are excited to announce the launch of their partnership on new annual grants to increase opportunities for outreach and awareness campaigns in regions challenged by a lack of resources, support, and/or public understanding about the brain. Up to $1,250 (USD) will be awarded to each selected project organized for Brain Awareness Week in countries outside of Europe and North America.

Aiming to effect change at the grassroots level, we hope that the chosen projects will generate interest within local communities through engaging activities and topics relevant to their particular concerns and contexts. While it is not a requirement that the proposed projects take place during next year’s Brain Awareness Week (March 16-22, 2020), they must run under the title of the global campaign.

Applications are now open for Brain Awareness Week projects taking place in 2020, so don’t miss this opportunity to join us and inspire the world about the brain! The deadline for both grants is August 9, 2019 (11:59 pm CET). For full details on how to apply, visit the IBRO website.

Brain Awareness Week is the global campaign to foster public enthusiasm and support for brain science. Every March, partners host imaginative activities that share the wonders of the brain and the impact brain science has on our everyday lives.
