The EASTERN BIRD BANDING ASSOCIATION seeks applicants to apply for grant
awards to be used toward research using banding techniques and/or bird banding
data. Applicants should submit a resume of their banding and ornithological
background, the project plan including the significance of the study site,
and a budget. No formal application forms are necessary, however three copies of each application are required
if you submit hard copy, (electronic submissions are preferred).
Grant requests must be received by March 15 each year with award announcements April 30.
EBBA Memorial Fund
Over 50 years ago EBBA established a Memorial Fund in memory of deceased members with income from the fund to be used to support student research in the field of ornithology using bird banding. The Fund consists of memorial contributions, dues from Life Memberships and other contributions members may make.
Many grants from this Fund have been made to worthwhile students through the years. Student interest in applying for an EBBA Memorial Grant has grown to record levels. This past year there was a record 27 applications for which EBBA made three grants. We need more funding to support this worthwhile effort.
If you would like to support EBBA’s quest for supporting more student research in ornithology, please consider a tax-deductible contribution or bequest to either the Memorial Fund or to next year’s budget for 2013 awards by contacting EBBA’s treasurer,
