WSO Research Grants – 2012
WSO provides small grants for research on Wisconsin birds. The grants, generally for $500 or less, are intended to encourage small research projects, especially by amateurs and students.
Grant money may be used for such things as travel expenses, usable supplies, minor equipment, etc.; more costly equipment may be funded if ultimate ownership resides with an organization or institution (museum, university, etc.).
The grants are issued once a year. Applications are due at the end of January. Click here for more information.
