  • Frank M. Chapman Fellowship

    Chapman Fellowships: One and two year Fellowships are awarded for research in avian systematics, evolution, and biogeography to be performed in residence at the American Museum of Natural History. These grants include a stipend and a budget that depends on the nature of the research. These Fellowships are highly competitive and normally only one or two are awarded per year. The single yearly competition has a submission deadline of November 15th. Normally, an applicant to this program must have prior discussions with one or more members of the Ornithology Department concerning the research project; successful applicants to this program will work with one of the Curators in the Department of Ornithology as a mentor. Chapman Fellowships are normally awarded to recent recipients of a doctoral degree in avian systematics. However, such Fellowships are also occasionally available to senior researchers on sabbatical leave from their home institution. Contact should be made with a Museum Curator to discuss such circumstances. The Fellowships are awarded in early to mid April.
