Grant-in-aid schemes


The Palaeontological Association has three grant-in-aid schemes.


Grant-in-aid: Annual Meeting Attendance

    Grant aid is available to assist postgraduate students attending the Association's Annual Meeting. This is available for those travelling from outside the country hosting the meeting (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are regarded as constituent members of the UK for this purpose). Awards are limited to those making an oral or poster presentation. Applications for grant aid to attend this year's meeting (no form necessary) should be made to the Executive Officer: Dr Tim Palmer, Institute of Geography & Earth Sciences, University of Wales Aberystwyth, Aberystwyth, Ceredigion SY23 3BD, (palass@palass.org).


Grant-in-aid: meeting support

    The Association is happy to receive applications for loans or grants from the organisers of scientific meetings that lie conformably with its charitable purpose, which is to promote research in palaeontology and its allied sciences. Application should be made in good time by the scientific organiser(s) of the meeting on the online application form (see below). Such requests will be considered by Council at the March and the October Council Meetings each year. Enquiries may be made to the Secretary, and requests should be sent by 1st March or 1st October each year.

Grant-in-aid: workshops and short courses

    The Palaeontological Association is happy to receive applications from the organisers of workshops and short courses for grants-in-aid. If the application is successful, we will require that the support of the Association is acknowledged, preferably with reproduction of the Associationís logo, in the Meeting literature. Application should be made by the scientific organiser(s) of the meeting by e-mail on the form set out below. Such requests will be considered by Council at the March and the October Council Meetings each year. Enquiries may be made to the Secretary, and completed requests should be made at least six months in advance of the event in question and should be submitted using the online application form, by March 1st or September 25th.
