Ayudas económicas para estudias fósiles de las Islas Británicas

Nos ha llegado información de pequeñas ayudas económicas para estudiar material paleontológico de las Islas Británicas subvencionadas por Palaeontographical Society Research Fund. Os Adjuntamos la información.

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@nhm.ac.uk) and Dr Paul Barrett (P.Barrett@nhm.ac.uk). Full details of the application process can be found at http://www.nhm.ac.uk/hosted_sites/palsoc/
