These are small short-term awards for research that are available to graduate students for expenses associated with projects primarily focused on the systematics and evolutionary biology of birds. These awards are highly competitive (recent success rates are approximately 20-30 percent); they average approximately $1,500, but occasionally are as large as $2,000-$3,000. Salaries and stipends are not funded. There is one competition per year with a submission deadline in November. Awards are normally announced by early to mid April.
