  • Parks Scholarship for Young Birders

    Melanie Colón

    The Georgia Ornithological Society (GOS) will send two lucky teens to Colorado to participate in the July 15 – 22, 2023 camp session. The GOS will cover the cost of the registration fees and up to $650 reimbursement for airline travel expenses. (Note: Scholarship recipients arrange their own travel. Food and lodging are included in the registration cost.) For more information about Camp Colorado, visit:

    https://www.aba.org/camp-colorado-2022/ (Note: Even though the URL ends with 2022, the web page contains 2023 info.)

    How to apply: The applicant must be at least 15 and no older than 17 during the camp session and must be a Georgia resident. Complete the application form (PDF Version or MS WORD Version) and write an essay (350 word minimum) about your interest in birds and birding, your involvement in the Georgia birding community, what you will do with the knowledge you will gain from this camp, your career goals, and how you will spread your interest in birds to friends. Include at least three letters of recommendation with the application. Scholarship recipients are expected to write an article with pictures describing their experiences at the camp for the GOShawk newsletter. To see issues of this newsletter, visit:


    Note: You are not eligible to apply if you have previously received two or more birding camp scholarships from GOS.
