The SRF fund is jointly administer by the councils of the Linnean  
Society of London and the Systematics Association.

Applications of all nationalities are welcome and need not be members  
of either the Systematics Association or the Linnean Society of  
London. Typical activities supported include contributions to  
fieldwork expenditure, the purchase of scientific equipment or  
expertise (e.g. buying time on analytical equipment), specimen  
preparation (including the cost of temporary technical assistance),  
and contributions to publication costs. Projects of a more general or  
educational nature will also be considered, provided that they include  
a strong systematics component. Typical activities not supported  
include attendance at scientific meetings and contributions to student  
maintenance or tuition fees. The fund does not provide payments for  
Bench Fees and projects already substantially funded by other bodies  
may be disadvantaged.

Successful projects are selected by a panel of six systematists who  
represent a wide range of conceptual interests and taxonomic groups.  
The value of any single award will not exceed £1500.

Applications deadline is the 31st of January. Decisions will be posted  
March-April. Please read the "Guidelines for applying for SRF funding"  
before completing the online application form below. Please note that  
only applications made using the form below are acceptable.
