[Sent on behalf of the Systematics Association. See reply address below.]

The Linnean Society (https://www.linnean.org/) and the Systematics
Association (http://www.systass.org/) jointly administer the *LinnéSys:
Systematics Research Fund* that provides grants annually for small-scale
research projects in the field of systematics.

The Systematics Research Fund has been renamed to the LinnéSys: Systematics
Research Fund.

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.
However, please note that it is unable to fund the cost of article
publication charges. 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. Projects already
substantially funded by other bodies may be disadvantaged. Applications of
all nationalities are welcome, but applicants must be a current member of
the Systematics Association or Linnean Society of London.

Successful projects are selected by a panel of systematists who represent a
wide range of conceptual interests and taxonomic groups. Generally,
applications in the range of £500-£1000 are preferred, the value of any
single award will not exceed £1500.

Deadline: *23.59 GMT on Monday 15 February 2021.*
