Event and Meeting Grants

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

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

Funds can be requested for in-person, virtual, or hybrid events. Any North Carolina university or non-profit organization (with its own independent tax ID number or EIN) may apply.
