The Arthur James Boucot Research Grants

The Paleontological Society supports research for early-career
paleontologists. The deadline for such two early-career grants is
February 1, 2021 and we encourage you to consider applying for either,
or passing this along to colleagues who you think may be interested in

The 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.
The Norman Newell Grants complement the Arthur Boucot grants, and
preference is therefore given to research projects in areas not
covered by the Arthur Boucot grant topical areas. Eligible applicants
include paleontologists who completed their Ph.D. within the last five
years and who are members in good standing of the Paleontological

Applicants can only apply to one of these Early Career Grants per
funding year. To broaden the reach of Paleontological Society funds,
recipients of a Norman Newell grant may not apply for an Arthur Boucot
grant, nor may they apply for a second Norman Newell grant. Similarly,
recipients of an Arthur Boucot grant may not apply for a Norman Newell

Additional details on the grants, including eligibility, funding, and
application instructions can be found at the PS website at
