Ian Nisbet Research Award

Ian Nisbet has provided steady direction and vision to the emergence of the Waterbird Society as an international ornithological society. He is well-known for his research on terns and gulls. Ian and Shirely Nisbet began in 2000 to build an endowment to provide funds for research. Preference is given to proposals for research on terns or gulls.

About the Nisbet Research Award

This grant is open globally to any student, professional, or amateur and should focus on those interested in research and conservation on terns and gulls. Financial and education status of applicants are not considerations. Selection is made by a committee based on the applicant’s likelihood of publishing timely and substantial contributions to the literature and/or making a contribution to the conservation of waterbirds.
