Now returning for a third year, the Ben Barres Spotlight Awards aim to help address that inequality by providing funds and visibility to researchers from groups that are underrepresented in biology and medicine or from countries with limited research funding.
Named in memory of our late colleague, transgender researcher and fervent advocate for equality in science, this year’s awards are our most inclusive to date. For 2021, researchers of all career stages are eligible to apply based on their country of work, disability, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or socioeconomic background. To show our support for researchers who have embraced new ways of publishing and reviewing research, the awards are, for the first time, also open to authors of refereed preprints with publicly available reviews in addition to eLife authors.
A distinct feature of this funding scheme is that we do not prescribe how the funds should be spent. Instead we invite applicants to tell us how the award would make the biggest difference to their research or career. This year the total budget has been increased to $60,000, and applicants can apply for individual awards of up to $6,000.
