The American Ornithological Society (AOS) research awards support undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs conducting research in various areas of avian biology. The AOS encourages undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students and postdocs from any region to apply. 

Deadline for 2018 cycle applications will be January 26, 2018

These awards are administered by the AOS Research Awards Committee. The AOS Awards committees strive to develop a balanced annual slate of nominees that represent the Society and includes the diversity of its members.
