Call for Scientific Community Service Grants from Young Investigators in India

Dear IBS Community,

Outreach and science communication is a responsibility that scientists, science professionals and educators across career stages and disciplines have towards society. IndiaBioscience strives to promote outreach, especially amongst talented Indian scientists at the early stages of their career via the IndiaBioscience Outreach Grants (IOG). The call for the 4th IOG is out. We invite young investigators* from India to lead outreach efforts by collaborating with either educators, students, scientists or science communicators to carry out outreach activities. YIM Alumni, Regional YIM Alumni are strongly encouraged to apply.
