Dry Dredgers Paleontological Research Award
The Dry Dredgers Paleontological
Research Award provides funding to support research in paleontology and
stratigraphy intended for publication. While any research topic may be submitted
for award, special consideration will be given to projects involving one of the
(1) the late Ordovician period, and in particular, the Cincinnatian Series.
(2) Paleozoic periods as centered on the Cincinnati Arch.
Applications from amateurs, students and professionals are welcome. Those research projects that involve collaboration by amateur and professional paleontologists are encouraged. However, awards will only be made to individuals for their personal expenses and not to teams.
The Selection Committee currently consists of 5 amateurs and 3 professional paleontologists, all of whom are members of the Dry Dredgers. All decisions of the Selection Committee are final and non-appealable.
Dry Dredgers, Inc. is a non-profit tax-exempt membership organization of amateurs and professionals formed in April, 1942. It is dedicated to stratigraphy and paleontology, particularly in the Cincinnati Series of the Upper Ordovician of the greater Cincinnati area. Its purpose is to stimulate interest and promote paleontology at all levels and to encourage the collection, identification, preservation and classification of fossils of all types. Throughout its history, the Dry Dredgers have encouraged cooperation among amateur and professional paleontologists.
