E. Alexander Bergstrom Memorial Research Award

The purpose of the E. Alexander Bergstrom Memorial Research Award is to promote field studies of birds, by helping to support a specific research or analysis project. In judging among proposals of equal quality, special consideration will be given to those on avian life history, that use data collected all or in part by amateurs, or that employ bird banding or other marking techniques. Both domestic (U.S. & Canada) and Latin American work is eligible for support.

The Domestic awards are aimed at people beginning their research or those with limited or no access to major funding. They are restricted to amateurs, undergraduates, and Master's degree students for individuals based and working in the United States or Canada. In contrast, all researchers based in Latin American countries (amateurs, undergraduates, master's and Ph.D. degree students) are eligible for the Latin American competition.

Approximately five domestic awards (maximum $1,000 each) and approximately three Latin American awards (maximum $1,500 each) will be awarded annually. Applications may be made for a grant of AFO mist nets in lieu of a cash award. All award winners are also given a one-year membership in the AFO and to our publications, Journal of Field Ornithology and AFO Afield. Applications may be submitted in English, Spanish or Portuguese.

U.S./Canada applications are due January 15th. Latin American applications are due July 15th. For more information, please visit our website.
