Awards up to £2,500 are available and aim to support short-term research positions for young (or early career) ornithologists, between a first and higher degree programme or immediately after completion of a higher degree.

Successful applications will combine the applicant’s development of skills that will be useful for their future career in ornithology with sound science.
