Awards and Grants

Spriggina, State Fossil for SA

To recognise work, expertise or publications considered to be outstanding, the Society has three awards with which it can indicate this recognition.

These are the Verco Medal for Fellows of the Society, the Andrewartha Medal for early career stage researchers and the Publication Medal for an outstanding paper submitted to the Transactions by a young scientist. 

Also, in recognition of the difficulty there may be in accessing money for a small research project by a student or perhaps retired member, there is a grant system available.
