Small Grants Scheme


The Association now offers three awards to fund palaeontological research, travel and fieldwork; these are integrated together as Small Grants Scheme awards.

  • Sylvester Bradley Awards: Multiple awards up to £1500 each, for palaeontological research
  • Callomon Award: An award up to £1500 for a project which is normally field-based
  • Whittington Award: An award up to £1500 for a project which is normally based on museum collections
  1. There will be one application form and Council will decide on the allocation of the awards based upon the nature of the project made in the application.
  2. Before applying applicants should first read the Terms and Conditions, which leads to the online application form.
  3. Awards are open to all members of the Association and will be announced at the AGM.
  4. Electronic submission of applications will comprise a CV, an account of project aims and objectives and expected outcomes (5000 characters maximum and including references where appropriate), and a breakdown of the proposed expenditure.
  5. Each application should be accompanied by an e-mailed reference (sent to palass@palass.org), to cover the project and a personal reference for the applicant. Applicants are responsible for ensuring that this reference is sent by the deadline.
  6. The application should include a summary (up to 1500 characters) suitable for the non-specialist which will be published in the Palaeontology Newsletter when the award is made.
  7. The final project report will be published in the Palaeontology Newsletter and successful applicants are asked to consider the Associationís meetings and publications as media for conveying the research results.

Deadline for applications is 1st November each year.
