The Society of Vertebrate Paleontology (SVP) is a US-based non-profit organisation established in 1940. Its mission is to advance the science of vertebrate palaeontology and to serve the common interests and facilitate the cooperation of all persons concerned with the history, evolution, comparative anatomy, and taxonomy of vertebrate animals, as well as field occurrence, collection, and study of fossil vertebrates and the stratigraphy of the beds in which they are found.

The aim of the SVP Field Training Award is to support undergraduate and graduate students, early career paleontologists, preparators, land managers with responsibility for paleontological resources and others in vertebrate paleontology-related positions who can demonstrate a need for field training and the benefits of field training to their professional development in vertebrate paleontology.

The recipient will actively participate in fieldwork and receive hands-on training from an experienced paleontologist or preparator. Applicants are required to identify a field mentor for their project and are encouraged to work with the mentor to deliver a realistic training proposal.
