Society of Systematic Biologists Research Awards

Posted on Apr 18, 2017 by in The OFI Blog |

The Society of Systematic Biologists (SSB) is currently accepting applications for its Graduate Student Research Awards program!

The SSB Graduate Student Research Awards assist students in the initiation (first two years) of their systematics projects and in the collection of preliminary data to pursue additional sources of support (e.g., Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants from the National Science Foundation) or enhance dissertation research (e.g., by visiting additional field collection sites or museums). Applicants may be from any country, but must be members of SSB, and are advised to join the Society as soon as possible to facilitate their applications. Previous awardees may not re-apply, but previous applicants who were not selected for funding are encouraged to re-apply. Awards will range between $1200 – $2000 and approximately 15 awards will be made. The list of awardees on the right includes examples of successful proposals for you to download.

All application materials are due April 30, 2017.
