Eastern Bird Banding Association
Call for Grant Applications
Deadline: 15 March 2017
The Eastern Bird Banding Association seeks applicants for grant awards to be used toward research using banding techniques and/or bird banding data. From one to five grants of up to $1000 each will be awarded with priority given to research being conducted on species that spend at least part of their life cycle in any U.S. state or Canadian province included in EBBA territory. Projects that are planned for other portions of the United States, Canada, or the Western hemisphere also may be considered. Research studies with conservation or management implications are particularly encouraged.
Applicants should submit a resume of their banding and ornithological background, the project plan including the significance of the study and a budget. No formal application forms are necessary, however three copies of each application are required if you submit hard copy. Electronic submissions are preferred. Grant requests must be received by 15 March and award announcements are made no later than 30 April.
Grantees are strongly encouraged to become members of EBBA, and are asked to submit a summary of their work at the end of the year, or present at least part of their study at the annual EBBA meeting. Travel grants for this purpose are available. Please see http://www.easternbi...-Guidelines.pdf for travel grant information and http://www.easternbi...Application.pdf for a travel grant application.
