Unitas Malacologica offers member-supported small grants for student research activities in malacology.
Any project, related to any kind of mollusc, anywhere, in any field of science, will be considered. There is no restriction on how the funds should be spent, though the funds should not be used to supplement the income of the awardee, and we do not support projects with direct commercial or industrial applications.
These awards are generally granted to PhD students who undertake a small, self contained project related to their dissertation research. Awards will be made up to a maximum of 1000 euro (=$1080 USD). Usually two or three awards are granted each year, and the normal value is around 750 euro.
The next deadline for applications is 15 May 2018.
To apply - submit the application form, and a letter of recommendation, by email to j.sigwart from qub.ac.uk
