Subject: [VA-bird] VSO Conservation Grants
Every year, the Virginia Society of Ornithology awards conservation grants
to worthy candidates conducting research in the field of bird conservation
with potential benefits to Virginia species and habitats. The VSO Board of
Directors has budgeted $2,500.00 annually. Awards are usually $500.00,
$1,000.00 or occasionally more if the project is deemed especially worthy.

Applicants are encouraged to submit a request in writing to the
Conservation Committee Chair. Each application should include:

1. A short research proposal describing benefits to our knowledge of
Virginia’s avifauna and/or its habitat

2. Requested funding level

3. Detailed budget for requested funding

The Conservation Committee will then consider each application and confer
with the entire Board of the VSO. Just to be clear, there are 2 separate
competitions for these awards; this is not a two-step process. Recipients
are asked to report their findings to the VSO board and members at the
completion of their project, specifically at the VSO Annual Meeting.

There are two deadlines for application: *July 31 *and *January 31*.

Please submit your application for a grant to Patti Reum (Conservation
Chair of the VSO) at <pareum...> .
