The Museum of Comparative Zoology (MCZ) invites Scientific Researchers Around the Globe to apply for the travel grants for research in animal systematic, known as the Ernst Mayr Grants 2020.
The main objective of these grants is to stimulate taxonomic work on neglected taxa. These include taxa with numerous poorly described species, genera and families known to have many undescribed species in institutional collections, taxa for which it is unknown what proportion of the nominal species are synonyms and difficult genera without keys.
$1000- £1,500 research grants.
However, travel, lodging, and meals while carrying out the research at the museum will be catered for.
The Ernst Mayr grant is open to all.
The Ernst Mayr Travel Grant applications must be written in English, and include:
- short project description and explicit statement of research goals
- curriculum vitae
- three letters of support
Deadline: October 15, 2020
