  4. As chair of the Wilson Ornithological Society Research Grants committee, I am looking for people willing to review applications for our research grants that are due February 1. More information about the grants can be found here: http://www.wilsonsociety.org/awards/wosawards.html Depending on the number of applications I anticipate we would need to ask each person to review 10-15 applications. You would be provided instructions, a link to the applications for your review, and a score sheet. I hope to have the applications assigned no later than February 12th and you would have one month to complete the reviews. If you are willing to serve as a reviewer, would you please reply to mih10@psu.edu with your name, e-mail and institution, and whether you have a student or students applying for any of the awards? Thank you very much, Meg --------------------------------- Dr. Margret (Meg) Hatch Associate Professor of Biology & Science Program Co-Coordinator Penn State Worthington Scranton
