The Jurassic Foundation grants fund research on any aspect of dinosaur paleontology (e.g., field exploration, fossil preparation or conservation, morphology, taxonomy, systematics, evolution, paleobiology, paleoecology, paleobiogeography, taphonomy). To be considered for funding, applications must clearly demonstrate that the proposed project will have a direct impact on understanding of non-avian dinosaurs and/or Mesozoic birds.
