In 2005, the ASM Graduate Research Scholarship Program was established with the generosity of Paul and Frances Bauer. The Bauers committed $2000 annually for five years which provides research funding to a graduate student at a Missouri university doing ornithological research in Missouri . A request for applications is sent to university contacts in the fall, and the applications are due the following January 15. A formal review process by the ASM Scholarship Committee (Brad Jacobs, Susan Hazelwood, and Sue Gustafson) determines the scholarship recipient.
