The purpose of the Richard H. G. Bonnycastle Graduate Fellowships is two-fold:

  1. to assist in the development of talented young professionals who are dedicated to furthering the conservation of wetlands and wildlife, and 
  2. to advance scientific understanding of the biology of waterfowl and wetlands with special emphasis on the Canadian prairies.

The Bonnycastle Fellowship for Prairie Ecosystem Studies fosters research in prairie Canada that enhances the scientific understanding of prairie wetlands, associated habitats and wetland-dependent wildlife, and contributes to the protection, restoration, or wise use of this highly altered landscape.

The Bonnycastle Fellowship in Wetland and Waterfowl Biology is open to a broad range of innovative proposals for work anywhere in North America, on any aspect of wetland or waterfowl ecology that promises to advance conservation. 

 Qualified applicants will be considered for either award based on a single application.

  • The fellowships are open to graduate students based at any North American university.


  • Applications from doctoral candidates are preferred, but strong M.Sc. candidates are also urged to apply.
