ARTHUR JAMES BOUCOT RESEARCH GRANTS FOR 2017
The Paleontological Society’s Arthur James Boucot Research Grants
support early career paleontologists in the fields of morphology,
taxonomy, and biostratigraphy, working on any taxa, preferably with some
combination of these approaches and a significant fieldwork component.
Arthur James Boucot Research Grants support original research by current
postdoctoral students, assistant professors (pre-tenure), and other
early career paleontologists with a PhD, with the possible exception of
an occasional individual deemed to be unusually qualified.
Paleontologists must be associated with universities, institutes, and
academies of science, or equivalent institutions.
Applicants must be Paleontological Society members unless there are
extenuating circumstances. In 2017, the Paleontological Society expects
to have $15,000 to award. Awards are typically less than $5000, but
larger awards are possible. Awards are made directly to individuals and
not to institutions. Awards cannot be used for institutional overhead,
publication costs, or modeling studies that rely on fossil or modern
databases. Applications are encouraged from the United States and
elsewhere in the world, however, the Paleontological Society cannot
award grants to applicants from countries with economic or trade
sanctions imposed by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
The application can be downloaded as one document from the
Paleontological Society’s web site:
