Grants of $20,000 and in-kind support to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations, IHEs, and government agencies for projects related to plugins utilized in scientific research. Funding is intended for a range of expenses including travel, salary, operational needs, and community outreach efforts.
The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative invites applications for a second round of grants to support plugin projects for the napari image analysis platform. This round focuses on ensuring the quality of existing plugins through improvements to documentation, user support, usability, and reliability, and establishing foundational plugins for cell biology analyses.
