Applications for two important opportunities from the Wilson Ornithological Society are open now through February 1!
Our four categories of research grant provide up to $2500 to support ornithology projects by researchers including students, early-career professionals, and those with limited access to funding. See here for full eligibility details and application instructions, and read about the 2021 recipients here.
We are also now accepting nominations (including self-nominations) for our brand new Early Professional Avian Conservation and Community Impact Award! This award honors the contributions of WOS members working in non-research careers that contribute to bird and bird habitat conservation, including applied science, education and outreach, communications, advocacy, and habitat conservation and protection. To be eligible, you must have five years or less of work experience in a job related to avian conservation. The winner will receive an original piece of artwork from an early career artist as well as funding to support attendance at the WOS annual meeting (meeting registration, travel, hotel, per diem) and an honorarium. See here for full eligibility details and application instructions.
Again, applications for both the research grants and the Impact Award are due February 1. Please spread the word!
