Systematics Research Fund – 2014/15 call for applications

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 2014/2015 application round is now open. The deadline for applications is Friday 16th January 2015.

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. However, the fund is unable to cover article processing charges. 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.

Please note that the applicant named on the application form must be a current member of the Linnean Society of London or the Systematics Association to be eligible for funding.
