Member Mini Grants

The goal of TPS's Member Mini-Grant program is to enable our members to hold in their communities events that enhance research in protein science. These could be meetings, seminars, workshops, experiments, networking or other small gatherings that bring groups together to learn, collaborate, share perspectives, and make professional connections. 

TPS also encourages outreach events intended to communicate the unique appeal and fascinating potential of research involving proteins to junior investigators, students, and under-represented minorities. Indeed, we are interested in anything consistent with fostering new protein research and recruiting new protein scientists.

Mini-grants can be for up to $500. Creativity is strongly encouraged. If you can figure out how to make a protein science beach party come together, we will support it! All ideas are welcome - the only restrictions are these:

  • One of the applicants needs to be a current member at the time of the application as well as when the event takes place. 
  • Mini-grants are not intended to fund speakers for other standing meetings.
  • Members who have already received funding cannot submit a request during the following calendar year.

Submit a mini-grant application.
