Hello Bio supports BNA Scholars 2022

23rd Sep 2021

Hello Bio has announced its support of the British Neuroscience Association's (BNA) Scholars Programme 2022 by providing a £300 bursary for each student to support them with their scientific career.

Supporting BNA Scholars

The BNA Scholars Programme supports students from underrepresented ethnic groups to thrive in neuroscience, and build a supportive community through networking opportunities, bursaries, and mentorship. Now in its second year, it offers students a mentoring scheme, networking opportunities, and membership to the BNA and FENS, as well as funding towards conferences. The programme is open to final year undergraduate, masters or PhD students, as well as research assistants and technicians who self-identify as Black, Asian or minority ethnic and are interested in pursuing a career in neuroscience.

The funds awarded by Hello Bio can be used by the Scholars during the programme for anything that will help further their scientific career, such as conference attendance, training, or equipment.

Speaking about their support, Steve Roome PhD, Managing Director, Hello Bio, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer financial support to the seven BNA Scholars of 2022. As a company, supporting diversity, inclusivity, and fairness to all are central to Hello Bio's ethos.

"We give voices to all scientists via our wide-reaching blog, and we are especially passionate about supporting early career scientists with our portfolio of low-priced research products, grants, and resources for personal and professional development. The BNA Scholars Programme is a much-needed initiative to support early-career Black, Asian & minority ethnic neuroscientists and we are excited to be part of it.” 

BNA President, Rik Henson, also commented: “We are incredibly delighted to welcome Hello Bio as a Supporter of the BNA Scholars programme 2022. By working together, we can ensure the BNA is able to progress on the important issues of equity, diversity and inclusion in neuroscience, and make a real difference to people’s lives and society.”

Applications for the BNA Scholars Programme 2022 will open in Autumn 2021.
