Donate to SICB!
NOTE: You do not need to be a member to make a donation!
The Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology welcomes donations that support its many programs furthering science and education. SICB welcomes inquiries from individuals or groups who wish to contribute to the programs of the society. For opportunities to invest in SICB's future, including options for planned gifts, or for any questions, contact the SICB Treasurer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
To make a donation to SICB electronically use the form below. You may donate in honor of another individual (see tribute information below). With our secure server, all of the data on the online form, including credit card information, are submitted safely to SICB headquarters for processing.
The funds below and general funds are overseen by the SICB Finance Committee. SICB policy stipulates that funds generally use a maximum of 4% of the five year trailing average value of the fund for the purpose(s) designated by the specific fund. There may be times when a fund cannot fully support a scholarship/award or function in a given year. This may be the case as new endowments are being established, or during economic downturns when the value and the return on the endowment decrease. General funds are used to support other SICB programs and activities.

Charlotte Mangum Student Support ProgramNamed in honor of Charlotte P. Mangum, a president of SICB, the program supports graduate student members to attend our Annual Meetings by assisting them with their travel and lodging expenses.
Dwight Davis FundDonations to this fund support the Division of Vertebrate Morphology's Davis prize. This award is presented to the best student oral contributed paper for this division at SICB's Annual Meeting.
George A. Bartholomew AwardNamed in honor of George A. Bartholomew, a president of SICB, this award is given annually to a young investigator for distinguished contributions to comparative physiology and biochemistry or to related fields of functional and integrative biology.
Grants-in-Aid of Research Program/Fellowship of Graduate Student TravelThe Grants-in-Aid of Research Program (GIAR) provides awards to SICB graduate student members to support scientific investigation in the field of integrative and comparative biology.
The Fellowship of Graduate Student Travel (FGST) provides funds for travel and other expenses for students to work at distant research laboratories, museums, or field sites. The primary purpose is for travel to "distant" research sites to learn specialized techniques or to use unique equipment or collections.
John A. Moore Lectureship FundNamed in honor of John A. Moore, the creator of the Science as a Way of Knowing (SAAWOK) series, this fund supports an SICB Educational Council Program lecturer at the SICB Annual Meetings.
Libbie Hyman Memorial Scholarship FundThis scholarship, in memory of Libbie H. Hyman, one of America's foremost invertebrate zoologists, provides assistance to students to take courses or to carry out research on invertebrates at a marine, freshwater, or terrestrial field station.
Dorothy M. Skinner Award FundEstablished in memory of Dorothy M. Skinner, a long-time member of the SICB and The Crustacean Society, the award provides travel support for women graduate students and/or postdoctoral fellows to present their research at annual meetings of the SICB.
Carl Gans Award FundEstablished in honor of Carl Gans and his many scientific and editorial contributions, this award recognizes excellence in biomechanics and functional morphology.
Howard A. Bern Lecture FundNamed in honor of Howard A. Bern, a president of SICB and preeminent endocrinologist and pioneer of the study of endocrine disruption, this fund supports the Howard A. Bern Lecture given by a distinguished comparative endocrinologist at the annual SICB meeting.
C. Ladd Prosser Symposium FundThis fund honors Professor C. Ladd Prosser's outstanding scientific contributions to the field of comparative physiology and recognizes his service to the society. The fund is used to provide partial support for a divisional or society-wide symposium at the annual SICB meeting, the topic of which falls within the purview of comparative animal physiology and is consonant with Professor Prosser's scientific opus.
SICB Symposium Enhancement FundUp-to-date, exciting symposia are the heart of our meetings. Yet obtaining funds to support symposium speakers has become more and more challenging. This fund will help provide such support, enabling symposium organizers to invite top-notch speakers, either from within SICB or outside, benefiting all members.
