About this funder:



The Georgia Ornithological Society's (GOS) mission is to encourage the scientific study of birds by gathering and disseminating information on Georgia bird life. GOS actively promotes bird conservation by encouraging the preservation of habitats that are vital to the survival of resident and migratory birds. The GOS also gives scholarships, produces scientific publications, and provides fellowship among those interested in nature.

    b) Habitat use, quality, and conservation 
    c) Avian communities 
    d) Federally- and state-listed species ( Invasive species)

  • Grant money shall not be used to fund the grantee's salary, tuition, university overhead requirements, or other indirect costs.
