eLife Opens Applications for the Ben Barres Spotlight Awards for Underrepresented Researchers

Applications are open for eLife’s 2024 Ben Barres Spotlight Awards, which reward up to $5,000 to institutionally affiliated life sciences or biomedical sciences researchers from underrepresented backgrounds or countries with limited funding. The awards, which launched in 2019, have supported more than 50 researchers who have authored publicly reviewed preprints or written eLife articles.

Ben Barres was a reviewing editor at eLife who “brought invaluable scientific expertise, boundless energy, and passionate advocacy to eLife's communities. He was a vocal champion for trans and women’s rights, shining a light on injustices within academia. Through the Ben Barres Spotlight Awards, we are proud to help uphold Ben's legacy and strive towards his vision of a more inclusive and equitable scientific community,” eLife states.

Applications are due by June 4, 2024. The winners will be announced at an online ceremony on July 3.
