The Shoalhaven on the NSW south coast is home to an amazing variety of birds and is a mecca for birdwatchers.
BirdLife Shoalhaven promotes a better understanding of our birds and works tirelessly to ensure their survival.

Apply for BirdLife Shoalhaven’s 2024 Student Research Grant

Last year BLS provided a grant to Shanaz Masani, a PhD student at the University of Sydney for her project “Understanding predator hunting to decrease nest predation of ground nesting shorebirds.”

For a full overview of her project go to BLS Autumn 2023 Magazine. BirdLife Shoalhaven will now provide a second grant of up to $4,000 (plus GST) to fund a research project in 2024. The project must improve bird conservation and a better understanding of birds in the Shoalhaven on the NSW South Coast.

To be eligible you must be a student currently enrolled in an Australian university higher degree course.

While it is not a requirement, projects focused on threatened species or with field work carried out within the Shoalhaven, will be highly regarded.

The grant must be used to directly support the project, e.g. on-ground work, education programs, project equipment or travel to relevant conferences.

The deadline for applications is 31st March 2024.
