- Applications will be accepted from postgraduate students at recognised Australian Universities who are undertaking full-time or part-time higher degree studies with a geological emphasis.
- Students enrolled in Honours degree courses at recognised Australian Universities, whether full- or part-time, may also be considered for an award.
- Applications are also encouraged from amateur or professional geologists, whether in employment as such or not, who can demonstrate a level of achievement in original research in Earth Sciences, for example through a record of publications on the subject.
- Projects proposed for support do not have to be restricted to Australian locations or specimens, but, given the Society's interests in the natural history of Australia, they must demonstrate a strong Australian context
- Money must be used for research purposes, which may include the purchase of equipment, laboratory, photographic or other consumables, and fieldwork or travel within Australasia
- Applicants need not be members of the Society, although all other things being equal, members will be given preference.
- Requests for subsistence, travel to conferences, or thesis preparation expenses, will not be supported.
- A grant from this Fund cannot be held concurrently with one from the Joyce W. Vickery Scientific Research Fund.
