The CFO Research Grant provides financial grants to qualifying individuals or organizations for projects that will have a lasting benefit to Colorado birds and the habitats on which they rely. Grants typically provide full support to projects requiring $600–$1,500; however, CFO will also consider partial funding of projects requiring more than $1,500. The Project Fund Committee requires that the recipients of funding publish a short year-end summary of their funded work in Colorado Birds: The Colorado Field Ornithologists' Quarterly and present their findings at the annual CFO convention the next calendar year. Unused funds must be returned. Note that equipment where use goes beyond the scope of the project (such as cameras, spotting scopes, and office equipment) usually is not funded.
