Student field work grants available
The following is posted on behalf of Luis Chiappe.
Dinosaur Institute Student Field Work Grants
These grants support student work in vertebrate paleontology. Only students
enrolled in a graduate program are eligible to apply. Proposals must be for
field work and limited to Mesozoic-aged rocks in lands administered by US
Federal Agencies (Bureau of Land Management, National Forestry Service, and
National Parks Service). Permits are the responsibility of the successful
applicant, although they should be processed in consultation with Dinosaur
Institute staff, and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County should be
listed as the repository for all specimens collected.
The application consists of a two-page proposal including a budget, as well as
a synoptic CV (not exceeding two pages), and a letter of recommendation from a
faculty sponsor (or the equivalent). The successful applicant(s) will be
expected to report on his or her work in a two-page report due within the same
calendar year of the grant and including a 100-word summary appropriate for a
wider audience (it may be posted in the Dinosaur Institute's website).
Successful applicants are also required to acknowledge the Dinosaur Institute
Student Field Work Grants and the particular Federal Agency (Bureau of Land
Management, National Forestry Service, and National Parks Service) in all
publications resulting from the funded field work and to send copies of these
publications to the Dinosaur Institute. The Dinosaur Institute reserves the
right to participate in the announcement of scientific discoveries resulting
from the funded field work.
Grants of up to $4,000 will be awarded to successful applicants.
Applications and any additional questions should be emailed to:
Luis M. Chiappe at firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for the applications is May 15th.
These grants are made possible by partial support from Phil Fraley Productions
and the Infoquest Foundation.
As a condition of receiving a grant, grantees acknowledge that they are not
employees or contractors of the Natural History Museum, must provide for their
own insurance, and release and indemnify the County of Los Angeles and the Los
Angeles County Museum of Natural History Foundation from all costs, claims or
expenses related in any way to the activities related to the grant
