Student Travel Awards

The deadline to apply for a 2022 Student Travel Award has now passed. Check back in 2023 for information about the next award cycle.

The Wilson Ornithological Society invites all students planning on presenting a contributed oral paper or poster at the society’s 134th annual meeting (July 17–20, 2022) to apply for a travel award. These awards are both need- and merit-based and are intended to encourage student participation by defraying part of the cost of attending the meeting.   

The application deadline is March 15. The award committee intends to select recipients and inform all applicants of the outcome by the end of April. Applicants are encouraged (but not required) to consider joining the WOS if not already a member; an annual student membership, including full access to The Wilson Journal of Ornithology, is only $20. A decision on whether the meeting will be held virtually or in person in Santa Fe, New Mexico, will be made by May 15. Should the meeting be virtual, travel grant funds will instead be applied to the registration fees of awardees.
