Ukrainian Brain Bee has started with the support of the Ministry of education and Science of Ukraine. Since 2013 we are supported by the governmental Minor Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Also in 2013, our competition was supported by Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. In 2015 we organized a crowdfunding campaign to participate in IBB in Australia - we have successfully gathered half of the necessary amount of money, the rest was covered by the organizers (the detailed financial report is available in Ukrainian). In 2016-2018 we received partial financial support from Society for Neuroscience (grant for Kiev Chapter) and FENS with DANA Foundation (grant for Brain Awareness Week). In 2018 STEM-girls initiative has supported us financially (travel grant for national champion). In 2019-2020 we are supported by Shevchenko Scientific Society (USA).
If you are interested to support this exclusive neuroscientific competition, you are kindly invited to contact the organizers.
