Este fondo recibe su nombre para honrar su memoria y tiene como intención promover avances en la investigación en aves, tal como él lo hizo y para lo cual puso tanta dedicación. http://www.afonet.org/ Intención del Premio: Promover los estudios de campo en aves, apoyando un proyecto de investigación o análisis específico. Frente a propuestas de igual calidad, se dará especial consideración a aquellas propuestas que abarquen el estudio de historias de vida en aves, utilicen datos colectados en su totalidad o en parte por amateurs, o que utilicen anillado de aves u otra técnica de marcado. Son elegibles para el premio tanto trabajos domésticos (Estados Unidos y Canadá) como Latinoamericanos. Criterio de Elección: Los premios domésticos están orientados a personas que estén comenzando sus carreras de investigación o que no tengan acceso a otros fondos. Estos premios están restringidos a amateurs, estudiantes de grado y estudiantes de maestría que se encuentren trabajando en Estados Unidos o Canadá. En contraste, todos aquellos investigadores de países Latinoamericanos (amateurs, estudiantes de grado, estudiantes de maestría y doctorado) pueden presentarse a la competencia Latinoamericana. Frecuencia y Monto: Los interesados deberán presentar un Formulario de Solicitud completo, un currículo de una hoja, una carta de referencia y una propuesta de investigación (máximo 3 hojas en espacio simple) antes del 15 de Julio de cada año. La propuesta de investigación (http://www.afonet.org/es/grants/Bergstrom/Bergstrom.html ) de 3 páginas deberá incluir: propósito de estudio, metodología, citas bibliográficas, y un presupuesto describiendo los costos totales y otras fuentes de financiamiento recibidas o a las cuales se pidió apoyo. Por favor no exceder el límite de 3 hojas. El comité toma en consideración la necesidad del investigador, de modo que puede incluir un párrafo explicando qué probabilidad tiene de completar el proyecto de no obtener el financiamiento otorgado por el Premio Bergstrom. Los aspirantes que pidan redes de neblina deberán enviar evidencia que poseen los permisos correspondientes. Los documentos originales de la aplicación más dos fotocopias deberán ser mandadas, impresas, por correo postal. No se considerarán las solicitudes por correo electrónico.
