The UBL Foundation

The UBL Foundation aims to fund and publish interdisciplinary works related to pollinators, bees and beekeeping by people of all ages.



The UBL Foundation provides small grant funding to support innovation, social and environmental justice, and creative projects across the STEAM spectrum that support our mission to improve bee health. We're keenly focused on providing funds to fuel projects within BIPOC, AAPI, LGBTQIA+, Latinx, and other marginalized communities that have unique but historically muted perspectives. We give priority to projects that incorporate our HoneyDNA data, although it is not a requirement.

Proposal process and guidelines

Grants are available on a rolling basis, reviewed at grant committee meetings that happen quarterly, in amounts of up to $2,500 per project. Awardees will be required to write a blog post or submit a 60-second video as the final product of their project, as a means to draw attention to awardee’s work and to support next steps and future goals in their journey.

The project must be completed within one year from the disbursement of funds.
