The University of Alaska Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of the 2003 Angus Gavin Memorial Bird Research Grant.

Proposals will be accepted from scientists within the university system, including faculty, research associates and graduate students.

Grants are intended to be used for the support of research on bird species found either permanently or seasonally in Alaska or its coastal waters, including their biology, general ecology and habitat relationships. Research designed to yield information of value in management of bird species will be given preference. This includes aspects of management directed toward protection, maintenance or enhancement of bird populations and their habitats that may be influenced by development activities. Proposals dealing with the habitat of Alaskan bird species and its effects on such species are acceptable under the terms of the grant.

All proposals will be submitted to a review committee composed of qualified professionals for selection and review.

The deadline for receipt of complete proposals is Nov. 15, 2002 for the 2003 field season grant. Successful recipients will be notified by Feb. 1, 2003.

Maximum grant amount: $15,000.
