The University of Alaska Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of the 2015 Angus Gavin Memorial Bird Research Grant.


Proposals for the grant will be accepted from scientists within the University system, which includes graduate students and faculty members employed within the University system.


Grants are intended to be used for the support of research on bird species found either permanently or seasonally in Alaska or its coastal waters, including their biology, general ecology and habitat relationships.  Research designed to yield information of value in management of bird species will be given preference.  This shall include aspects of management directed toward protection, maintenance or enhancement of bird populations and their habitats that may be influenced by development activities. Proposals dealing with the habitat of Alaskan bird species and its effects on such species are acceptable under the terms of the grant.


All proposals will be submitted to a review team composed of qualified professionals for selection and review.


Deadline:  The deadline for receipt of complete proposals including applications, transcripts and letters of reference shall be November 14, 2014 for the 2015 field season grant.  Any proposals received after the deadline will be returned unopened to the applicant.  The successful recipient will be notified of the review team's decision in mid-February 2015.  The review team's decision on the merits of proposals is final.


Maximum Grant Amount:     $15,000

The committee may also fund additional grants depending on available funds and the amounts requested by applicants.  Requests for smaller amounts or partial funding will be considered.
