The Association is happy to receive applications for grants from the organisers of scientific meetings, workshops and short courses that lie conformably with its charitable purpose, which is to promote research in palaeontology and its allied sciences. The Association will consider applications up to £2,000. Application must be made in good time (at least 9 months before the start of the event) by the scientific organiser(s) of the meeting on the online application form (see below). Such requests will be considered by Council at the May and October Council Meetings each year. If the application is successful, we will require that the support of the Association is acknowledged, preferably with reproduction of the Association's logo, in the meeting/workshop/short course literature and other media. Enquiries may be made to the Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org).
