Overview:

The American Ornithological Society (AOS) offers travel awards for students and/or postdocs to help defray transportation expenses to attend the annual meeting of the society. Separate awards were offered previously by the American Ornithologists' Union and Cooper Ornithological Society, which merged in 2016 to form AOS.

The deadline for travel award applications is same as for presentation awards and regular abstract submission. Awards are contingent on acceptance of the scientific abstract by the Scientific Program Committee. Students may apply for both a travel award and a presentation award in the same year.

The meeting of the American Ornithological Society will be held in Anchorage, AK from June 24-June 28 2019. Details forthcoming and can be found on the official meeting website. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
