Grants for Young Scientists

Our primary mission is to provide supporting grants to students and young scientists working on aspects of an origin of life on land with hot spring pools being one of the plausible chemical settings. We are planning to make our first grants in Q2 2022 after a period of organization building. If you feel moved to make a donation to help us get there, please visit our PayPal donation page here. All donations are tax-deductible for taxpayers in the United States. BIOTA Institute is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization (EIN: 770401399).

Biota has the capacity to receive gifts of assets. Our broker can process stock gifts and our staff can facilitate gifts of any asset type to ensure the donor’s maximum tax benefit.
