Description

1) Objective

Founded in 1858, the British Ornithologists’ Union (BOU) is one of the world’s oldest and most respected ornithological organisations with an international membership stretching across all continents. Their activities include (1) the promotion of IBIS, an international journal of avian science; (2) the organisation of conferences and other events; (3) the provision of grants and bursaries; and (4) the general promotion of ornithology. It is a membership-based organisation.

They will fund scientific studies with clear aims and objectives (ideally with clearly stated hypotheses) where the methods are clearly explained, robust and appropriate to answering the questions asked within the application. Applications may be on any aspect of ornithology but the BOU will look especially favourably on areas where there are particular difficulties in funding research from national or local sources.

2) Eligibility

Applications are from individuals only, not from organisations. The applicant must be the principal investigator for the study. The research must be of high scientific quality.

3) Location

Actions can take place in various countries from the OECD DAC list.

4) Budget

The BOU has limited funds at its disposal and grants are normally awarded to a maximum of £2,000.

5) Application

Application is by email only. Please email your completed application form to grants(a)bou.org.uk by 31 October 2023.
