Hansjörg Eichler Scientific Research Fund

This fund, named in honour of Hansjörg Eichler, supports Australasian systematic botany research and the career development of ASBS members through small research grants. From 1997 to March 2024, ASBS has distributed $232,801 to 98 successful recipients, almost all of whom were students.

This funding scheme was established in 1992,  and grew significantly between 1994 and 2011, due to generous contributions from Mrs Marlies Eichler. It continues to be supported through ongoing tax deductible donations from members and supporters. 

There are two rounds of funding offered each year, with applications due on 14 March and 14 September. See below for further details.  

Grant Details

These grants aim to support research in systematic botany and the career development of ASBS members by providing funds for specific research projects.

For the purpose of this fund, Australasia is defined as the area including Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea (including Papua New Guinea and Irian Jaya), and the islands of Melanesia (including Fiji, Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands, and New Caledonia).

The Hansjörg Eichler Scientific Research Fund is for research projects focused on the systematics of land plants, algae or fungi. This can include studies of taxonomy, phylogeny and biogeography.

Grants are open to applicants who meet the following criteria:

  1. The applicant is a current financial member of the Australasian Systematic Botany Society.
  2. The project contributes to Australian systematic botany (including land plants, algae, and fungi). While the focus on Australia is an Australian Tax Office (ATO) requirement, the current view of Council is that this condition will be met if the project can demonstrate an impact on understanding the flora of Australasia (as defined under the Aim).
  3. The applicant is attached to an Australasian research institute (in the very broadest sense, including herbaria, universities, and government agencies). Students not formally registered or attached to an Australasian institution may provide evidence in the form of a collaboration letter signed by a researcher based in an Australaisan institution.
  4. The project is approved by an appropriate manager or director, and in the case of students, also by a supervisor.
  5. The project must be carried out within Australasia (see definition provided at the top of this page).

All ASBS members can apply; however, students, recent graduates, newly-established botanists and non-salaried researchers will be given preference.

The maximum grant awarded will be A$5000.

The maximum amount available for all grants in any one year will be determined by ASBS Council before applications are called. The Research Committee may decide to make one or more awards in a particular round. If no proposal is of a suitably high standard, no grant will be made in that round.

Some examples of project costs that can be funded by this grant include consumables, travel and other costs associated with fieldwork, contracted services such as DNA sequencing, etc.

Large capital items, the publication of journals and books, and the attendance at research conferences cannot be funded by this grant.

Grant applications will close on 14 March and 14 September each year. Funding for successful applicants will commence generally in May and November, respectively, after the completion of necessary agreements.  Successful applicants are published in the ASBS newsletter in June and December. 

Applications will be assessed on the quality of the applicant and the proposed project. Applications will be judged on: research track record of the applicant, relative to opportunity (40%); merit and planning of the research project (40%); and value for money (20%), which includes the value of the grant in supporting the activities of the recipient, and the nature of additional research the grant will facilitate.

The Hansjörg Eichler research grants are competitive. Proposals are viewed against other submitted proposals. Therefore applicants should prepare their proposals carefully and completely. The following will be taken into account in assessing proposals:

  • The academic standing of the applicant, including brief personal details, academic record (undergraduate as well as postgraduate, including honours awarded), and institution where the project will be carried out. 
  • Evidence of the applicant’s ability to carry out the project, such as relevant experience with the techniques, previous experience in carrying out research and any publications (published or accepted only). In cases of excessive completion times for previous projects and/or study programmes, or failure to achieve reasonable outputs (e.g. publications), justification should be provided.
  • A project that is clearly defined in scope and will preferably result in a publication. For those applicants applying for funding for work which is part of a larger project, such as a PhD, preference will be given to those applications which specify a particular, well circumscribed part of the project which will be wholly funded by the grant.
  • The scientific and/or theoretical merit of the proposal and the likelihood that it will make a worthwhile contribution to Australasian systematic botany.
  • Details on how the project specifically addresses any strategic actions in the decadal plan for biosystematics and taxonomy in Australasia.
  • Identification and proper budgeting of the particular aspect of the project that funding will make possible, rather than a request for partial support of a large project. Preference will be given to applications that request funding to enable the extension of a project into some new and worthwhile area.
  • The feasibility of the project being carried out within the proposed timetable and with the available resources.
  • The soundness of the proposed methodology and planning of the work schedule. A brief yet sufficiently detailed justification of  the selected method should be included to allow assessment of its suitability, as well as an appreciation of the applicant’s knowledge of its its strengths and weaknesses.
  • References and a publication list may be attached to provide additional information.

An example proposal which meets all the criteria is available < example >. For details of other types of research projects that have been funded in the past, please see the list of Previous Recipients below.

Recipients and their institutions must be able to agree to our standard grant conditions.

Within 12 months of the grant being issued, recipients must send the ASBS Vice President:

  • a brief summary of the project for the Australasian Systematic Botany Society Newsletter, and
  • a table and statement detailing how the money was spent.

For examples of project summary reports from previous projects, please see the list of Past Award Recipients.

This grant application form or a reasonable facsimile must be completed in sufficient detail to provide a ‘stand alone’ proposal.

Please note: for those applicants who are recent graduates or who have no publication list, a copy of their undergraduate and postgraduate transcripts is required.

Completed applications can be submitted either as .pdf files by email (preferred) or in hard copy to the ASBS Vice President by the deadline.

Frequently Asked Questions


You must be a current financial ASBS member to apply.  Applying for ASBS membership is easy – please see our membership page to join now!

A non-salaried researcher is a retired researcher who is still associated with an institution and working on research projects.

Those applicants who are recent graduates or who have no publication list must submit a copy of their undergraduate and postgraduate transcripts. Other applicants do not need to submit academic transcripts.

Typically this will be the head of department or the dean at your institution. If you are a student, you will also need the signature from your main supervisor. We recommend that you do this step as early as possible, as it may take time to get the appropriate signatures and unforseen delays could impact your chances of submitting your application by the deadline. We do not need a signature from your university Grants Office, but your institution might require that, and it could take additional time for you to obtain this.


These reports are extremely important to the Society and our efforts to continue supporting quality research with positive outcomes. Eichler reports are read by a broad membership base and help publicise early career researcher profiles in published form. The Society views these as “grant reports with a difference”, which benefit both the recipient as well as the Society.

The report is due one year from the date the grant is awarded.

The conditions of the grant state that the report should be a brief summary of the project. In general, the report should outline the goals, outcomes and challenges of the funded research project. The report should detail the main aims of the project, and what specific results were achieved using the funds from the grant. The report can also outline any challenges that were encountered in the lab, field or herbarium over the course of the grant period, and what new skills or knowledge were learned from these experiences. Although some references may be cited, the report is not a peer-reviewed article, and should not be used to publish new results. Awardees are encouraged to let their personality shine in the report and subsequent ASBS newsletter article, and submit at least one photo to support their report. Awardees are encouraged to read some of the many examples of other published reports in previous issues of the ASBS newsletter for ideas and inspiration.

Photos and images should be sent as separate files and should not be embedded within the written report. Figure captions for each image, including photo credits and copyright information where relevant, should be included in the written report.

Typically this will be a Word or Excel file, which includes a table and text. In the table, all the relevant costs should be detailed along with their monetary value. One or two paragraphs summarising or explaining these costs should also accompany the table.
