List members may be interested, or may know of someone who might be interested in applying for a grant to assist them in palaeontological research of a taxonomic nature within the British Isles....
The Palaeontographical Society Research Fund
Awards from the Palaeontological Society Research Fund are made to assist palaeontological research (travel, visits to museums, fieldwork, etc.) within the Society's remit of describing the fossil fauna and flora of the British Isles.
It is intended that two awards will normally be made in each year to a value of around £500 each, although the exact amount and the number of awards may vary at the discretion of the Council. No definite age limit or other restriction is applied, although preference will be given to applicants at the start of their careers or those without alternative sources of funding.
The award is open to both amateur and professional palaeontologists, but preference will be given to members of the Society.
The next deadline for applications will be 16 April 2009.
Applications should be submitted electronically to the Co-Secretaries, Dr Sarah Long (S.Long at nhm.ac.uk) and Dr Paul Barrett (P.Barrett at nhm.ac.uk). Full details of the application process can be found at http://www.nhm.ac.uk/hosted_sites/palsoc/
