About this funder:



The goal of the François Vuilleumier Fund is to provide one or more awards per year for thesis studies of Neotropical birds conducted by graduate students from any country in Latin America and the Caribbean (the “Neotropical Region” as broadly defined by the Neotropical Ornithological Society). The funds are provided to assist thesis research by students enrolled in an institution in the Neotropics who have little or no access to funds within their country or at their institution. Awards will be competitive and are expected to be approximately US$ 1000.
