Kushlan Wading Birds Grant

James A. Kushlan Wading Bird Research & Conservation Grant

Grant Application Period Is Now Closed!
Notification of grant award(s) will be announced April, 2022

The goal of the Fund is to encourage research and conservation on wading birds through the awarding of grants. Grants are to fund research, especially conservation-related research, on species of storks, ibises, spoonbills, and herons. The grants will be awarded every year. To apply, a project must make a significant contribution to the understanding and conservation of wading birds. Research on rare, endangered, and little-known species or populations will be prioritized.

These grants are open to research and conservation professionals, students, citizen conservationists, not-for-profit organizations, or government entities with no restriction as to the location of the recipients or the work to be done.
