Biotechnology Event Sponsorships (BES) provide up to $3,000 to support life science-focused events held primarily for a North Carolina audience. 

Biotechnology Meeting Grants (BMG) are restricted to national/international meetings held in North Carolina and offer up to $10,000. 

Virtual and hybrid events are eligible for support. See the guidelines for details.

Any North Carolina-based nonprofit organization may apply.
