The Percy Sladen Memorial Fund gives grants for field work abroad (away from the applicant’s usual country of residence) in the earth and life sciences.
Grants are generally for sums of less than £1000 (approx AUD $1,400)
Funds are not available for further education of any kind, for visits to conferences, for work in institutions or for field work undertaken as part of a dissertation of higher degree. Undergraduate expeditions are also not supported.
Applications must be accompanied by a signed and completed copy of the University’s Grant Application Cover Sheet. Submissions may be emailed to the Research Branch unless otherwise specified.
Grants Officer: Dr Don McMaster
