This postgraduate student award was made possible through the generosity of Allen Keast, Emeritus Professor of Biology at Queens University, Kingston Ontario, Canada. Professor Keast was arguably Australia's most influential ornithologist if account is taken of the scope of his research, the number of scientists with whom he worked, and the part he played in educating the global ornithological community about Australia's birds.
He was made a Fellow of the RAOU in 1965 and awarded the D.L. Serventy Medal in 1995. Professor Keast sadly passed away in 2009.His desire to fund this award stems from a lifelong passion to encourage and support young ornithologists.
This prestigious award is allocated once annually and is reserved for the most meritorious applications.Successful applicants are eligible to reapply annually, provided satisfactory progress is made and reporting requirements are met.
BirdLife Australia is proud to be the nation's largest bird conservation organisation. As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, our aim is clear: to create a bright future for Australia's birds.
