Overview:

The Councils of the Linnean Society and the Systematics Association jointly administer the SRF fund.

Typical activities supported include contributions to fieldwork expenditure, the purchase of scientific equipment or expertise (e.g. buying time on analytical equipment), specimen preparation (including the cost of temporary technical assistance), and contributions to publication costs. However, please note that we are unable to fund the cost of article publication charges. Projects of a more general or educational nature will also be considered, provided that they include a strong systematics component. 

Successful projects are selected by a panel of systematists who represent a wide range of conceptual interests and taxonomic groups. The value of any single award will not exceed £1500.
