WFO is pleased to announce its 2023 Research Grant Program to support student research and internships in the field of the biology of birds. Now entering its fourth year, the program supports WFO’s mission of promoting the study of birds throughout western North America and supports the mission of the WFO Student Programs Committee to help develop the next generation of field ornithologists and sustain a long-term bond between young ornithologists and WFO.
The Research Grant Program has been supported by generous donations to the WFO Scholarship Fund. In 2022, we received funds from Sierra Foothills Audubon Society to support the program. Attendees at our virtual conference in 2021 and our recent conference in Reno in 2022 had the opportunity to hear grant recipients present their work.
Three grants of $1,500 each may be awarded in 2023 for the 2023 field season. Information about the criteria for applying and application requirements may be found at WFO_Research_Grant_App-2023.pdf.
The application deadline for 2023 is March 6, 2023. For further information, contact John Harris.
