    Fund History

    The Burt Monroe, Jr., Avian Research Fund was established in honor of Dr. Burt L. Monroe, Jr., who was an internationally-known and respected authority on avian taxonomy and an active member of the Kentucky Ornithological Society. Dr. Monroe served as the Society's President from 1973 to 1975. KOS members and non-members are encouraged to support the Monroe fund and avian research in Kentucky through their donations.

    Fund Purpose

    Financial support from this fund (not to exceed $5,000) is to be used for basic scientific research. Matching funds from other sources is strongly encouraged and availability of such funds will be taken into consideration by committee members in making funding decisions. No portion of this fund is to be used for administrative overhead or other such costs not directly associated with the conduct of research. Financial support may be approved for a period of two years but may not exceed $5,000 for a single project. It is further prohibited for the same project to receive funds from both the Burt Monroe Fund and the Gordon Wilson Fund in the same calendar year.


    Eligibility is in Kentucky only: "KOS members needing funds (up to $5,000) to assist them in conducting research on birds in Kentucky."
