Overview:

The Stephen R. Tully Memorial Grant is given to support research, and conservation of raptors especially to students and amateurs with limited access to alternative funding. The award is given in memory of Steve Tully, a young raptor biologist, who lost his life in 1978. Agency proposals are not accepted.

The Stephen R. Tully Memorial Grant was established in late 1983. The grant honours the memory of Steve Tully, who died in a car accident in 1978, at age 21. Steve was a falconer with an enthusiastic interest in raptor biology. A Colorado resident, Steve was married to Babette (nee Cranson), another early RRF member. It was a measure of Steve’s dedication to raptors that he was searching for his trained red-tailed hawk after the accident when he died of internal haemorrhaging before he received treatment for his injuries. Steve’s family and friends established the grant in homage to him and to perpetuate the conservation and study of the raptors he loved in life.
