Funding for your ornithological research

The BOU offers two different award schemes for those undertaking ornithological research around the world.

Both schemes are now open for applications for projects running from spring 2016.

An important change from this year is that both schemes are now open only to BOU members (all BOU members for grants and BOU ECR members for bursaries). The only exception is those from and still residing and working in a developing country (see list) can still apply without being a member.

BOU Small Ornithological Grant Scheme

This scheme provides awards of up to £2,000 per project and is aimed at supporting small projects outright and to part-fund medium-sized research programmes.

BOU Career Development Bursaries

Our bursary scheme supports early-career researchers (students and those three-years post their last degree) undertake short-term (up to 10 weeks) ornithological research projects away from their home institute. Successful proposals will aim to develop the skills that will be useful for the applicant's future career in ornithology. Awards of up to £2,500 are available.
