Event and Meeting Grants

NCBiotech's event and meeting grants provide support for North Carolina-based events and meetings that bring information and networking opportunities on diverse topics to the life science community statewide.  

Biotechnology Event Sponsorships (BES) provide up to $3,000 for events to support life science-focused events held primarily for a North Carolina audience.  Biotechnology Meeting Grants (BMG) are restricted to national/international meetings being held in North Carolina and offer up to $10,000. 

Any North Carolina-based nonprofit organization may apply.
