Subject: [VA-bird] Notice about VSO Conservation Awards
The VSO Board established the VSO Conservation Fund (originally named the
Small Grants Conservation Fund) in March 2007. The VSO Conservation
Committee manages the fund. 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 and the amount
is determined by the Conservation Committee.

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 or to a Virginia species
2. Requested funding level
3. Detailed budget for requested funding

The Conservation Committee will then consider each application, confer with
the entire Board of the VSO, and notify applicants of an award by July 31.
Recipients are asked to report their findings to the VSO board and members
at the completion of their project, occasionally at the VSO Annual Meeting.

Again, the deadline for application is *JULY 31, 2019.*

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