Overview:

The Maryland Ornithological Society (MOS) awards ecology or ornithology scholarships to Maryland teachers and naturalists for summer workshops at either the National Audubon Society’s camp on Hog Island in Maine or to the Maryland Birds and Habitats program at Washington College on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Each award covers the cost of tuition, room and board for an extensive five- or six-day course of study and instruction in ornithology, ecology, conservation, and natural history. Travel arrangements and costs are the recipient’s responsibility.
