Field Trips Travel Awards

Funding is available to facilitate participation by biologists with expertise in shorebird biology in the Neotropics.

 TRAVEL AWARD APPLICATION.  May be completed in English, French, Portuguese or Spanish


Limited funding is available to help cover costs for those unable to attend without additional support, provided by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Environment Canada, the International Program of the US Forest Service, the silent auction, and member contributions.  We aim to maximize the number of attendees, and attain broad geographical coverage of the western hemisphere.  We’re still seeking (and anticipate) contributions to fund more travel awards, and will continue to distribute awards as long as funds come in.   We will be able to provide more awards if those able to do so cover part of their costs. 

Priority for awards will be given to persons who:

  • register and submit abstracts for the meeting program,
  • have expertise in Neotropical shorebird biology,
  • will disseminate knowledge locally after the meeting
  • have little or no institutional support
  • provide partial support from other sources.

Registration and abstract submission are separate processes from applying for Travel Award support.
