Systematics Research Fund

The Systematics Research Fund is a joint fund of the Linnean Society of London and the Systematics Association. It provides grants for small-scale research projects in the field of systematics. The 2013/2014 application round is now open. The deadline for applications is Tuesday 14th January 2014.

The SRF typically supports 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 publication costs. Projects of a more general or educational nature may also be considered, provided that they include a strong systematic component.

The fund does not provide support for attendance at scientific meetings, student maintenance or tuition fees, nor for bench fees.

Projects already substantially funded by other bodies may be disadvantaged.
Successful projects are selected by a panel of systematists who represent a wide range of conceptual interests and taxonomic groups. The value of any single award will not exceed £1500.

At least one applicant from each application must be a member of the Linnean Society of London or the Systematics Association in 2013 to apply for a SRF grant in the 2013/14 round.
