The CSMB will provide financial support to graduate student societies for a variety of activities related to biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology or genetics. Examples of supported activities include (but are not restricted to) the following:

Scientific Symposium Days, with invited scientists speaking on subjects in the areas of biochemistry, molecular biology or cell biology.

Student Research Conferences, where students display their research work as posters, or give oral presentations.

Career Fairs or Career Workshops in areas related to biochemistry, molecular biology or cell biology.

The society will support up to six events each year, to a maximum of $500 per event, on a competitive basis. Student organizations seeking financial support under this program should contact the society Secretary (see below), with a short description of the planned event and the amount of funding requested. The request should also include a Regular Member of the Society as a Sponsor/Coordinator, working with the Student Organization. Requests will be accepted twice each year (up to 3 possible awards for each competition), with deadlines of February 15 and September 15.
