SBSA Program Proposals

SBSA wants to help Biosciences graduate students organize and run programming they want that will benefit the Biosciences community (e.g. by building community, professional/academic development, etc.). This proposal system allows students to work with SBSA to develop and implement their idea(s) with funds provided by SBSA. We hope this will lead to a greater variety of programs, to complement the ones SBSA already provides, that will improve the Biosciences graduate student experience.

Guidelines, information about previous proposals, and an example program can be found at the Proposal Program Reference Sheet.

Proposals are considered on a quarterly basis. The next round of proposals will open in Winter 2018.

Guidelines for running events can be found at the Event Organizer Guidelines.
