Targeted Donation Ideas

EquitableTech: Diversity in Tech & Open Source

Please donate to our newest project, EquitableTech. Our activities will focus on diversity in computer science majors and the tech industry. Our first events will bring back the OpenHatch campus workshops to teach about open source software skills. Our target locations will be minority-serving institutions such as Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and Tribal Colleges.

SciComm Diversity Travel Fellowship

Please donate to sustain our Science Communication (SciComm) Diversity Travel Fellowship. The first 2 years were generously funded by an Idea grant from the National Association of Science Writers. However, now we’re on our own to raise funds for fellowships at $1,000 each. These monies will send minority journalists/communicators to the annual ScienceWriters conference for professional development and mentoring..

Roca’s Bioinformatics Research Side Gig

DiverseScholar Executive Director, Alberto Roca, is a trained biochemist who learned bioinformatics in the 1990’s when it was just called “sequence analysis”. He still maintains a small “independent scientist”, award-winning research project ( to keep these skills intact and to maintain credibility among academics. See the latest published manuscripts in F1000Research and BMC Proceedings. Please donate generously to help off-set research expenses such as open access charges and traveling to VIZBI/BioVis scientific conferences. Thanks!
