  • Frank M. Chapman Grant

    Melanie Colón

    The Frank M. Chapman Memorial Fund of the American Museum of Natural History was set up by Ms. Elsie M. B. Naumburg in memory of Dr. Chapman, a long-term Chairman of the Department of Ornithology at the Museum. Grants for research in several aspects of ornithology are supported by the Fund. A Committee composed of Curators in the Ornithology Department at the Museum, along with the Museum's Richard Gilder Graduate School and other representatives of the Museum and non-Museum communities, handles the administration of the Fund and the grants.


    Chapman Grants: Modest short-term awards for research in ornithology are available to advanced graduate students (and occasionally to post-graduate researchers) for expenses associated with their research. These awards are highly competitive (recent success rates are approximately 30 percent; they average approximately $1,000, but occasionally are as large as $2,000-$3,000. Salaries and stipends are not funded. Wildlife management and other applied proposals are rarely funded. There is one competition per year with a submission deadline of November 15th. Awards are normally announced in early to mid April.
