The goal of the Kushlan Research Award in Ciconiiform Biology and Conservation is to encourage significant scientific advances in the biology, ecology, or conservation biology of wading birds (i.e. herons, storks, ibises, and their taxonomic allies).
The grants committee currently solicits proposals that focus on: species relationships within the group; and the status, range, and population sizes of little-known species of Ciconiiformes.
Funding is awarded at up to US $7,000 (approx AUD $9,300)
These grants are open globally to any student, professional, or amateur.
