The council of the Systematics Association has re-established its Research Grants scheme to promote systematic and taxonomic investigations in biology and palaeobiology. Applicants of all nationalities are welcome, and need not be members of the Association. Younger, retired and “amateur” systematists are encouraged to apply, as well as more established researchers. Typical activities supported include contributions to fieldwork expenditure, the purchase of scientific equipment or expertise (e.g. buying time on expensive analytical equipment), specimen preparation (including the cost of temporary technical assistance), and contributions to publication costs (including academic theses). 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.
