The American Malacological Society (AMS) has several funds that were established to provide financial research support for students and others working in malacology. The sponsored research is expected to result in a peer-reviewed publication. Funds from the Melbourne R. Carriker Student Research Award in Malacology and Richard E. Petit Student Research Award for Revisionary Taxonomy and Systematics of Mollusks are intended to support thesis or dissertation research involving mollusks conducted by students enrolled in an advanced degree program, although undergraduate students are also eligible to apply. The Dee Saunders Dundee Memorial Research Grant - Malacology Research Award aims to support research projects of graduate students, postdoctoral research associates, and early career malacologists from underrepresented backgrounds. More information about these funds and application instructions are given at respective links below.
