Applications are being accepted now until March 31st for up to $5000 to help cover the cost of travel to, and research at, the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa. The grant is administered by the Centre for Species Discovery and Change, and is open to faculty and students alike. To quote the CMN website:
The Centre for Species Discovery and Change at the museum awards annual travel grants for research in plant, animal, mineral and fossil systematics.
The main objective of the Canadian Museum of Nature Visiting Scientist Awards is to assist collection-based systematics studies by
- facilitating and supporting access to the collections of the Canadian Museum of Nature
- providing external expertise enhancing the state of curation of the museum's collections.
Enhanced curation could include
- designation of types
- updated taxonomy
- specimen-level data-basing
- specimen sorting and identification, particularly in taxa for which the museum lacks in-house expertise, etc.
The deadline for applications is March 31st, 2017.
