Paleontological Society Arthur James Boucot Research Grants

January 28, 2019
Arthur James Boucot Research Grants are funded by an endowment generously provided by Art and Barbara Boucot to support early career paleontologists with a PhD to conduct research in the fields of morphology, taxonomy, and biostratigraphy, working on any taxa. These grants support original research via payments to postdoctoral students, assistant professors (pre-tenure), and other early career paleontologists, with the possible exception of an occasional individual deemed to be unusually qualified. Paleontologists must be associated with universities, institutes, and academies of science or equivalent institutions. The grants support research on morphology, taxonomy, and biostratigraphy and cannot be used for institutional overhead, publication costs, or modeling studies that rely upon fossil or modern databases.

Deadline: February 1, 2019. Send inquiries and completed applications to Dr. Sally E. Walker (
