James L. Baillie Memorial Fund
Although support of undergraduate, graduate, or post-doctoral studies is not a priority of the Baillie Fund, the Fund does support one award for a graduate student conducting field studies of Canadian birds in their natural environment. The Society of Canadian Ornithologists (SCO) administers the James L. Baillie Student Research Award, worth $1,000. The application deadline for this award is 15 February.
Information on how to apply to the James L. Baillie Student Award for Field Research is available on the Society of Canadian Ornithologists' website at www.sco-soc.ca/awards.html .
