Track I: Home institution matching required
This track is intended to support undergraduate research at institutions that offer such funding to their faculty/students. With this, the IBA hopes to help their member institutions stretch their own funding to a more expansive number of research groups.
Within this track, the faculty member is eligible for up to $1,000 in funds matching their institutional funding. Students are eligible for up to a total of $1,500 in funds matching any institutional funding that is exclusively for students. Up to $300 additional funding (no matching required) towards publication fees will be awarded if the work is published in Spora or Letters in Biomathematics.
Track II: No home institution matching required
As the IBA is committed to supporting undergraduate research, faculty mentors with no home-institutional financial support may apply for funding under this track. With this, the IBA hopes to extend the opportunities to those who value undergraduate research in mathematical biology, but are limited in resources.
Within this track, the faculty member is eligible for $400 research support funding or stipend. Students are eligible up to a total of $1,000 stipend. Up to $100 additional funding will be awarded towards publication fees if the work is published in Spora or Letters in Biomathematics.
