BLS Student Research Grant

click to increase and decrease size BLS is delighted to announce its new Student Research Grant program with funding raised from the 2022 Bird Haven Festival and the support of BirdLife Southern NSW.

We will provide a grant of up to $4,000 to fund research by a student currently enrolled in a higher degree course at a NSW or ACT university.

The grant must be used to support a research project in 2023, that will improve bird conservation and/or a better understanding of birds in the Shoalhaven.

While it is not a requirement, projects focused on threatened species or with field work carried out within the Shoalhaven, will be highly regarded.

The grant must be used to directly support the project and/or its dissemination, for example on-ground bird conservation work, education programs or materials, project equipment and materials, or travel to relevant conferences.

The successful applicant will be required to give a presentation on their project at a BLS event or other conference, and submit an article in a future BLS Magazine.

The deadline for applications is 31st March 2023 and the form and guidelines can be downloaded by clicking the following links -
