NORTH STAR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY TRANSMITTER GRANT PROGRAM - North Star Science and Technology, LLC and American Bird Conservancy announce the 9th bi-annual North Star Science and Technology Transmitter Grant Program. In the spirit of giving back to the research community that they serve, North Star will award a total of eight (8) battery-powered or solar powered satellite transmitters (Argos Platform Transmitter Terminals (PTTs), GPS or Doppler, to 1-3 recipients (8 PTTs to one project or 4 PTTs to each of two projects, or 4 to one, 2 to one, and 2 to another). PTTs are powerful, cutting-edge tools for the study of bird migration that greatly extend the range over which individual birds can be tracked. Research that contributes to our knowledge of avian biology and that provides data useful for bird conservation, particularly of threatened species, will receive preference in the selection process. American Bird Conservancy (http://www.abcbirds.org) will handle the proposal submission process, review proposals, and select the winning projects. Please see http://www.northstarst.com/grant-program/programm-announcement/ for more information and proposal guidelines. Deadline for proposals is March 13, 2015. Applications and any further questions about the program can be directed to George E. Wallace, American Bird Conservancy (EM: gwallace@abcbirds.org; PH: 540-253-5780; FX: 540-253-5782).
