The Purple Martin Conservation Association's Research and Conservation Grants are offered for the purpose of promoting and facilitating research on, and conservation of Purple Martins. However, under certain circumstances, we will consider funding projects on other species of New World swallows, especially if the species is threatened or endangered. We will not fund projects testing martin house design preference (we are conducting such research at our headquarters), nor will we fund the placement of housing for strictly aesthetic or humanitarian purposes. We will, however, consider funding the placement of housing for conservation purposes. PMCA Research and Conservation Grants are provided to defray the expenses incurred in the course of scientific research and conservation. Grants may cover travel, supplies and equipment, but shall not include salaries or overhead charges to institutions or agencies.
