Member travel grants

BOU members (you can join here in order to be eligible to apply for an award) travelling to major international conferences to present their work can apply for these awards.

NOTE: Due to the impacts of Covid-19 we are not advertising applications for this bursary scheme for 2021. We hope to resume the scheme in 2022.

The events currently supported are (inc. next year being held):

Australasian Ornithological Congress (AOC) 2023
European Ornithologists’ Union Conference (EOU) 2023 *
International Ornithological Congress (IOC) 2022
North American Ornithological Congress (NAOC) 2024
Ornithological Congress of the Americas (OCA) 2023
Pan-African Ornithological Congress (PAOC) 2022 View

* EOU2021 (rescheduled for March 2022) is too early in the year for us to include this event in our awards for 2022.

Note: we do not offer awards to attend our own conferences.
