We are thrilled to introduce the newest additions to the Seeding Labs community: the Instrumental Access 2018 awardees! You can meet them here

Here are a few facts about the 2018 group...

There are 14 new awardees from 10 countries.

While the majority of the 2018 awardees are located in sub-Saharan Africa, we also have representation from South Asia (India) and Latin America (Peru). The group includes a university in a country new to Instrumental Access: Benin.

More than 15,000 students per year will benefit from this year’s Instrumental Access shipments.

Instrumental Access equipment will impact an estimated 14,900 undergraduate students and 1,200 graduate students each year—providing crucial hands-on educational opportunities.

Hundreds of scientists will  gain access to the equipment they need to transform lives and fuel development.

Equipment will be available to 300 faculty members in the awarded departments alone, as well as many others from across these universities and beyond.

All of our awardees are using their scientific expertise to search for solutions to the problems that matter most to their communities and the world.

Here are a few examples:
