Hi all,

I would like to draw your attention to the Norman Newell Grant for early
career paleontologists whose deadline is Feb. 1, 2019 and fast
approaching. The grant is funded by the Paleontological Society (PS) and
applicants must be current members of the PS at the time of application.

Eligible applicants include paleontologists within five years of their
Ph.D., who are members in good standing of the Paleontological Society.
Applications are encouraged from anywhere in the world, except those
from countries with economic or trade sanctions imposed by the U.S.
Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

The Norman Newell grants complement the Arthur Boucot grants, and
preference is therefore given to research projects in areas not covered
by the Arthur Boucot grant topical areas of morphology, taxonomy, and
biostratigraphy. Applicants can only apply to one of these Early Career
Grants per funding year. To broaden the reach of Paleontological Society
funds, recipients of a Norman Newell grant may not apply for an Arthur
Boucot grant, nor may they apply for a second Norman Newell grant.
Similarly, recipients of an Arthur Boucot grant may not apply for a
Norman Newell grant.

Four Norman Newell grants of $5,000 each will be made each year. Awards
are made directly to individuals and not to institutions, and awards
cannot be used for salary, stipends, tuition, or institutional overhead.

Application instructions (including downloadable form and details on two
required letters of recommendation) and complete grant details are
available at

Information for the complementary Paleontological Society Arthur James
Boucot Research Grants for early career paleontologists (with the same
deadline) is available at

Apologies for cross-posting but we would like to have a large pool of
applicants. Feel free to forward to qualified candidates.

Phil (on behalf of the Newell Grant Committee of the Paleontological
