    The Gavin Grant is awarded annually to support research on bird species found either permanently or seasonally in Alaska or its coastal waters, including their biology, general ecology, and habitat relationships. 

    Scientists within the University of Alaska system, including graduate students and faculty members, are eligible to apply.  Deadline to apply is December 13, 2022.

    The Gavin Grant was established in 1983 with gifts from ARCO and its employees to honor the memory of Angus Gavin, an environmental scientist and advisor to ARCO. Gavin was hand picked by ARCO Chairman Robert O. Anderson to observe, categorize and quantify the little known flora and fauna of Prudhoe Bay in 1969. Gavin’s work was instrumental in helping ARCO and the scientific community draw conclusions about the impact of oil field development on the ecology of the North Slope and to recommend operational changes that would minimize or negate any adverse effects on the environment. ARCO later became part of ConocoPhillips Alaska.Please submit your proposals via the Gavin submission form. Access to the University of Alaska Google Workspace is required. 

    Please contact your department or the University of Alaska Foundation for more information.
