The Australian Biological Resources Study (ABRS) program at the University of Queensland provides grants to honors, master’s, and Ph.D. students for taxonomic research. Specifically, the ABRS program offers three-year research and postdoctoral fellowship grants for researchers whose primary aim is to undertake taxonomic research on the Australian biota or to develop products that aid in the dissemination of taxonomic information on the Australian biota.

They also offer capacity‑building grants for taxonomic and systematics research on Australian flora and fauna in the form of honors, master’s and Ph.D. awards.

The award value peaks at $90,000, which could be a huge help towards achieving a career milestone. There is still time left before the deadline of October 31, 2014 to apply. More details can be found here.
