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...> . Patti Reum *** You are subscribed to VA-bird as <lists...> If you wish to unsubscribe, or modify your preferences please visit https://mailman.listserve.com/listmanager/listinfo/va-bird ***
