  • Bonnycastle Fellowship

    Melanie Colón

    The Bonnycastle Fellowship for Prairie Ecosystem Studies fosters research in prairie Canada that enhances the scientific understanding of prairie wetlands, associated habitats and wetland-­‐dependent wildlife, and contributes to the protection, restoration, or wise use of this highly altered landscape. The

    Bonnycastle Fellowship in Wetland and Waterfowl Biology is open to a broad range of innovative proposals for work anywhere in North America, on any aspect of wetland or waterfowl ecology that promises to advance conservation. Qualified applicants will be considered for either award based on a single application.


    The competition is open to graduate students based at any North American university. It will be awarded based upon: the qualifications of the applicant; the scientific soundness of the student's research proposal; originality and creativity in study design; expected contributions of the study to wetland or waterfowl ecology; the importance of the proposed research to conservation; and achievability of the work. Applications from doctoral candidates are preferred, but strong M.Sc. candidates are also urged to apply. The award of up to $8,000/year (Canadian funds) is available to provide personal or research support for successful applicants. The award is renewable for up to two additional years for PhD students, once for M.Sc. students, assuming annual approval of a satisfactory progress report and the need for continuing financial support.
