eLife offering small awards for underrepresented authors
If you are an underrepresented scientist who has published in eLife and you need an infusion of funding, apply to the journal’s Ben Barres Spotlight Awards program by Aug. 1. Also note that the number of awards is limited.
Here’s an excerpt from the press release, which you can read in full here:

Awards are available to authors of research articles published in eLife, who identify with one or more of the underrepresented communities addressed by the programme. These include scientists who are based in resource-scarce countries and/or are disadvantaged due to their gender, career stage, ethnicity or disability. eLife welcomes applications from eligible authors across the globe.https://elifesciences.org/for-the-press/8653dece/elife-announces-new-funding-to-support-diversity-in-science
