I would like to draw your attention to the Norman Newell Grant for early career paleontologists whose deadline is Feb. 1, 2019 and fast approaching. The grant is funded by the Paleontological Society (PS) and applicants must be current members of the PS at the time of application.
Eligible applicants include paleontologists within five years of their Ph.D., who are members in good standing of the Paleontological Society. Applications are encouraged from anywhere in the world, except those from countries with economic or trade sanctions imposed by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
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 of morphology, taxonomy, and biostratigraphy. 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 grant.
Four Norman Newell grants of $5,000 each will be made each year. Awards are made directly to individuals and not to institutions, and awards cannot be used for salary, stipends, tuition, or institutional overhead.
Application instructions (including downloadable form and details on two required letters of recommendation) and complete grant details are available at http://paleosoc.org/grants-and-awards/paleontological-society-newell-grant/
