The Purple Martin Conservation Association offers annual research grants to students, professionals and individuals engaged in Purple Martin research. Projects are supported on a one year basis as determined by the availability of funds. 

The Purple Martin Conservation Association's Research and Conservation Grants are offered for the purpose of promoting and facilitating research on, and conservation of Purple Martins. We will consider funding the placement of housing for conservation purposes. PMCA Research and Conservation Grants are provided to defray the expenses incurred in the course of scientific research and conservation. Grants may cover travel, supplies, and equipment, but shall not include salaries or overhead charges to institutions or agencies.
