Apply for an Early Career Scientist Grant - it's quick and easy!

Here at Hello Bio we are trying to support scientists in as many ways as we can:

  • With our biochemicals and reagents that are around half the price of most other suppliers,
  • With lots of resources on the Hello Bio Blog to help you with paper writing, dissertation advice, PhD help, wellbeing, presentations & so much more
  • With the annual Lab HeroesTM awards, where we recognise the unsung heroes of the scientific research world.

We are now delighted to announce that every month we will carry out a draw and award a grant of $500 to an early career life scientist to support them with their scientific career. The grant is really flexible and can be used for anything that will help your scientific career - examples could be:

  • Fees associated with publishing in open access journals (eg. Article Processing Charges).
  • Virtual conference registration fees
  • Conference travel expenses
  • Or anything else to help support your research & career!

There are just 3 simple requirements:

  1. You need to be a current life science post-graduate or post-doctoral researcher, and you must have received your highest degree (BSc, MSc or PhD) within the past 10 years
  2. You must provide a description of what the money will be used for
  3. And after you have submitted your application, we will need a short statement from your supervisor / PI to confirm your application.

Assuming that the above requirements are met, your application will be entered into a draw and the winner will be selected at random. We will post details of the winners on our website.

It's super quick and easy to apply - just click on the button below:
