Awards & Funding
BioKansas has unique funding opportunities to help both entrepreneurs and students in our region reach their professional goals. These awards are made possible through the support of company sponsors dedicated to growing our regional life science ecosystem.
Entrepreneur Travel Awards
One of the greatest challenges entrepreneurs face is access to capital. To promote innovative companies for growth and success in our region, BioKansas is funding travel awards for local entrepreneurs to attend pitch competitions and venture capital events around the country. As every company’s needs are unique, these travel awards provide support for entrepreneurs to attend events most relevant to their particular field and stage in their life cycle.
Professional Development Awards
BioKansas student awards provide students and postdoctoral researchers with access to unique training opportunities of their choice while simultaneously promoting diverse career opportunities in the biosciences. These awards can be used for event registration, travel costs, training, and other expenses associated with a desired professional development or career preparation experience related to the biosciences. Opportunities outside of traditional academic training are prioritized.
