Spring 2015 Application Now Open - Deadline April 15, 2015

Do you have an idea for hosting a local networking event for current and potential Biophysical Society members? The Membership Committee has a mini-grant opportunity, which will provide up to $500 to help you host an event. The venue and format of the event are up to you—we are looking for creative ideas that will promote interactions between members and non-members interested in biophysics and the Society. For example, the grant could provide food and beverages for guests attending a presentation by a local biophysicist you recruit. All current Society members inside and outside of the US are eligible to apply.
