Each year, the Wilson Ornithological Society offers five categories of research grants. The focus of each differs somewhat, as does the amount of the award. Willingness to report results of the research as an oral or poster paper at an annual meeting of the Wilson Ornithological Society within the next 5 years and a brief write-up and a photograph of the awardees for the webpage is a condition of all five. Applicants must use the Research Awards Application Form, in conjunction with our online application system.


Deadline for applications and recommendations each year: 1 February


The next deadline will be 1 Feb 2014.

The online application page, including detailed application instructions, will be available beginning 1 Oct 2013.

This award is limited to independent researchers without access to funds and facilities available at colleges, universities, or governmental agencies, and is restricted to non-professionals, including high school students.
