NEW! SEB Diversity Grant

25 Jan 2021 - By: SEB

Diversity Grant


The SEB has a continued commitment to ensure equality, inclusion, and diversity in all our activities and encourage our members to make a similar commitment.

The newly launched Diversity Grant provides funding to help tackle barriers to inclusion and support initiatives that promote diversity in academia and science. 

Members can apply for funding of up to £1000 to cover costs associated with improving diversity and increasing inclusivity in academia and research, specifically within the field of experimental biology. This may include but is not limited to:  

  • Making your workplace a more inclusive environment for example through the creation of good practice toolkits or holding a diversity training session
  • Improving inclusivity at research events you have organised for example, providing financial aid to underrepresented groups or improving accessibility of facilities
  • Improving Diversity in your field for example through the creation or support of a mentoring scheme 
  • Increasing awareness of the contributions of underrepresented groups in experimental biology for example organising hackathons, giveaways, and promotional events. 

Applications are welcome throughout the year.
