The Wisconsin Society for Ornithology sponsors several grants to support ornithological research by students and professionals, promote the study of birds by youth, enhance our knowledge of Wisconsin wetlands, and implement shorebird management activities. WSO has awarded more than 50 grants over the last 5 years. This grant funds a variety of bird projects by beginners, amateurs, and independent researchers. Graduate students and professionals in ornithology may apply for personal projects only. Grant amounts of up to $500 will be awarded for each project. Grant money may be used towards travel expenses related to fieldwork, supplies, and equipment; more costly equipment will be funded if ultimate ownership resides with a professional organization or institution.
