The Australasian Seabird Group (ASG) offers small grants to support projects of current science students or those who have recently (within three years) finished postgraduate studies in seabirds.

Students attempting Honours, Masters or PhD projects that contribute to the knowledge or conservation of seabirds in Australia and New Zealand will be considered.  Preference will be given to applicants who are members of the ASG but those who are members of Birdlife Australia or the Ornithological Society of New Zealand may also apply.

Grants will not exceed $A500.  No more than two Project Support Grants will be made in any calendar year.

Applications should be made to Nicholas Carlile, Secretary, Australasian Seabird Group (Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam.

The Australasian Seabird Group is a special interest group of BirdLife Australia and the Ornithological Society of New Zealand.
