Systematics Assn LogoTypical activities supported include contributions to fieldwork expenditure, the purchase of scientific equipment or expertise (e.g. buying time on analytical equipment), specimen preparation (including the cost of temporary technical assistance), and contributions to publication costs. However, please note that we are unable to fund the cost of article publication charges. Projects of a more general or educational nature will also be considered, provided that they include a strong systematics component.

LinnSocArms+NameRedTypical activities not supported include attendance at scientific meetings and contributions to student maintenance or tuition fees. The fund does not provide payments for Bench Fees. Projects already substantially funded by other bodies may be disadvantaged. Successful projects are selected by a panel of systematists who represent a wide range of conceptual interests and taxonomic groups. Generally applications in the range of £500-£1,000 are preferred, the value of any single award will not exceed £1,500.

Please read the "Guidelines for applying for SRF funding" before completing the online application form below. Please note that only applications made using the form below are acceptable.
